Summer Party and Award Ceremony

Fakultäts-Events |

June, 2 from 1.00 p.m. or rather 5.00 p.m.

After a Corona break of two years it's finally time for celebration again! Therefore the Department of Informatics cordially invites its students, Professors and employees to its Summer Party - for the last time under the label of "Department". After the traditional table football tournament organized by the Fachschaft MPI in the afternoon, in the context of the Award Ceremony the Center for Doctoral Studies in Informatics and its Applications (CeDoSIA) will grant the awards for excellent mentoring of doctoral students and the Fachschaft MPI will grant the awards for excellent teaching. Subsequently, as every year, we offer music, free food and drinks: burgers, BBQ, salads, soft drinks and beer.
There will no longer be a 3G requirement for accessing TUM premises. Pending further information on the extension of the mask requirement, TUM urgently and emphatically recommends the use of FFP2 masks on all TUM premises where the minimum distance of 1.5 meters cannot be maintained.

From 1 p.m. Table football tournament organized by the Fachschaft MPI

The research group of Applied Software Engineering (Prof. Stephan Krusche) presents topics of modern computer science research, most notably the DuckieTown platform (, which makes the current state of robotics and artificial intelligence accessible and tangible for visitors from any discipline. In addition, scientists from the research group work on cutting-edge topics in the ITüpferl and show applications and demonstrations from their research projects. In addition to the research workshop, the ITüpferl also features several exhibits from the history of computer science, including a workstation computer from the beginning of computers and hard drives of different generations. The regular opening hours of the ITüpferl: Every Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. (during the lecture period). Further information regarding the ITüpferl can be found here:
