Seminar Technische Informatik

The seminar of the Computer Systems and Telematics (CST) research group introduces students to advanced topics based on the Telematics and Mobile Communications lectures. A talk will be given by students on a weekly basis ("Präsenzseminar"). To pass the seminar, a written report (english or german) has to be submitted at the end of the semester. All seminar topics are supervised by PhD students of the CST group. Frequent meetings with the supervisor are advised. Besides the talk and seminar report, all deadlines have to be met. Attendance of 85% is required, as well as following the general rules of the seminar regarding form and quality of content.

You will get an (mandatory) introduction to scientific research and writing, as well as some hints how to give a good presentation in the first few meetings. We will discuss some papers and articles (required reading) so that you know how to critically review and evaluate publications.

Topics will be introduced in the first meeting. You must specify three topics by email and will get one assigned until the second week. More information will be available in the first meeting.
