All terms of the thesis defense are described on the web pages of the Collège des écoles doctorales (CED).


The defense procedure is entirely online. To obtain access to the thesis-démat software, which allows you to undertake all the steps, you must communicate, within an incompressible period of three months (D-90) between the beginning of the procedure and the actual date of the defense:

- The jury of your thesis with all the details on the members (grade, professional affiliation, rank, HDR, CV for foreigners researchers not full professor)

 - The most conservative defense date possible: it is possible to postpone the date but not to advance it during the procedure.

 The email that is sent following the validation of the ED is automatically directed to your u-paris student address: you must make sure that you have access to it and/or make a redirection to your usual email address.

 You must pay particular attention to all the deadlines that frame the procedure and submit the different documents in due time. The doctoral school will help you with the procedure but can not take over from you.


Concerning the constitution of the committee, the rules are as follows:
