Telekooperation Seminar

The TK Seminar is cycle of seminar where students are given the chance to read and analyze current scientific publications. In this term, the theme of the TK Seminar is Ubiquitous Computing.
There will be topics from the area of networking, trust & privacy, and human computer interaction.

The goals of the TK seminar are threefold:

  1. to introduce students to a research area,
  2. to critically read and analyze scientific papers, and
  3. to present the evaluation of such papers in both written and spoken forms. 

The TK Seminar is targeted at computer science students (or related areas, such as electrical engineering) that are working towards their Diploma, Master's or Bachelor's Degrees. 


Course Description

In the TK seminar, students are expected to write a survey on a current research topic and present their own conclusions. Course participants will select one topic of interest and write a short survey (max 6 pages). Furthermore, course participants will learn how to review scientific reports and will test their skills by evaluating the reports of other colleagues. Finally, they will present their work to their colleagues and instructors.

The goal of this course is not only to introduce the student to a new research topic, but also to prepare the students for giving scientific talks and addressing an audience. An introduction to the academic work on how to write, publish, and present your finding will be given at the beginning of the course.
