Seminar TK: Security Privacy and Trust

The TK Seminar is cycle of seminars where students are given the chance to read and analyze current scientific publications. In this winter term, the theme of the TK Seminar is Security, Privacy, and Trust.

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 for 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, the students are expected to report on current research topics and present their own conclusions. Course participants will select one topic of interest and write a short report (4-5 pages) about as a scientific paper. Furthermore, course participants will learn how to review scientific reports, and will test their skills by evaluating the reports from their colleagues. In addition, they will present their work to their colleagues and instructors. Apart from the presentation, there will also be an open discussion about the topic and the presentation.

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 address an audience. An introduction to the academic work on how to write, publish, and present your finding will be given in the beginning of the course.
