    Seminal is a short course during which you can show more then one presentation.

    For me a presentation is where you usually reveal your position on a particular subject. The expectation is that  the presenter is the expert. Questions are expected, but only at the end of the presentation.

    A seminar, on the otherhand, is where a group will discuss a topic or particular subject and contributions are expected throughout the procedure. It is more shared and collective.

    Difference between Seminar and Presentation.
    Seminar is constructed on a theme whereas presentation is based on any topic. There can be a lot of presentations in a seminar. A seminar can be whole day event while a presentation is short and on specific topic.

    In brief, a presentation can be a subcategory of a seminar.

    When a person represents something to a group, he doesn't ask for feed back "No reaction" All the time someone talks and others listen "or nap wink", but a siminar is different, it's a little representation of a certain topic followed by a discussion, that requires more concentration and following up from audience, this makes it more instructional and takes a longer time.

    seminar is a scheduled presentation in which only few people of high designation are requested to speak ...rest all the students ,teachers , researchers are only allowed to ask questions in the end.
    while in presentation like paper presentations,picture or poster presentations..the students , researchers or there junior fellows are allowed to present and the people like judges come there to judge it and give rewards....

    Both are means of delivering information, thus tools for 'learning'. Both can be delivered by one or more speakers, and are derivatives of lecturing, and often boring. A narrow topic presentation is usually fact-filled and as such contains the ‘meat’ of the topic sandwich. Al Gore is an example through his presentation of “Climate Change”, which is often excerpted within green technology seminars and conferences.
    The hierarchy of oral delivery of information can be described as discussion groups (moderator, open floor or table discussions), presentations (narrow topic, usually single expert speaker, audience participation usually reserved to the end), lectures (single expert speaker, Q&A at the end), seminar (wider topic, one or more expert speakers, audience participation throughout the seminar), and conference (widest topic, containing multiple discussion groups, presentations, lectures, and seminars, often concurrently).
    None of these terms have precise definitions, and vary considerably by context. For example, a seminar has a different meaning in the professional trades and academia, and even from one university to another. Presentations are even less well defined because they can be used to inform, as described above, or to persuade as in a sales presentation, or to influence, as in a political candidate’s presentation of views.

    Presentation is a gift and seminar is a conversation.

    I believe a presentation is something in which a speaker presents an idea or product to a group of people. A seminar is more of a discussion regarding a topic.

    A presentation requires you to address a gathering of people and speak your mind whereas a seminar requires you to have more interactions. A presentation is usually done alone whereas a seminar often has a panel of speakers.
