What you will learn

Each participant has to pick a topic out of a pool of topics which are to be announced at the first meeting. The topics encompass one till two research papers. Based on the paper(s) the student has to pick a third one by his own. To guide the student while reading the papers, we are going to provide a list of questions which have to be answered for each paper. That lists have to be submitted by the review due (cf. timline). Feedback towards the reviews is provided by us afterwards. According to the feedback you start writing a small survey (3 pages) of the read papers. Each student has to give a presentation of 15-20 minutes where he/she compares the papers and also explaines the main contributions of the papers.


The seminar is a block course, there will be a first meeting with presentation and assignment of topics and a day with the presentations. Further appointments with the supervisor of a topic will be scheduled upon appointment.
