All groups have to register with me (Florian). Please send one e-mail including enough details to identify you (e.g., names, immatriculation numbers or similar) and a short introduction into what you're planning to do.

You can participate in the exercise even if you don't have a group, yet. I will collect all single participants and help you in forming groups.

Registration is open until Tuesday, 16th of January!

After that, we will contact you and assign you a tutor. If we believe your topic is too bold or does not match the aims of the exercise, we will suggest a fitting alternative to you. Your tutors will do their best to assist you during the exercise, including help with the underlying technologies.
