Announcements

  • The seminar will take place in presence in room P801.
  • We will try to live stream the seminar as well. The link for this is: BBB
  • The first seminar is expected to take place on 7th April 2022. Here, the presentation slots will be distributed across the following weeks. In general, it is intended that you give 2 presentations. One at the beginning of your work and the second talk at about 2/3 of your thesis. In the first presentation, it is important to clarify the motivation and the research question, as well as the planned operationalisation. The expected time for this is 5 - 10 minutes. In the second presentation, the algorithms and procedures used should be explained and clarified to the audience. If possible, it is of course also welcome to present and discuss results that have already been achieved. The length of this presentation should be about 20-25 minutes. The final grade of the seminar is based on the two individual grades of the presentations.
  • After each talk, there will be a short scientific discussion in which ALL listeners are invited to ask questions and make comments. With this in mind, it is appreciated that you are present for as many of the seminar dates as possible.
  • The schedule of lectures will be displayed and updated on this website. Please check back regularly.
  • Please enroll in the associated Moodle course. If necessary, I will contact you this way in the future.
