Time & Location: Online Sessions (Untill further notice)



Due to the current Covid-19 situtation, all the sessions of this seminar will be held online over tum-conf ZOOM service


  • The first official session of the seminar, for the registered students, will be on Friday 23.10.2020, at 11:00. Attendance for all the registered students is mandatory and the coordination will be over moodle.

In our first session on 23.10.2020 students will form their group and we will discuss the available topics. Each group will get assigned to one topic according to their own preference. Groups will collect the necessary materials (state of the art scientific works e.g. scientific publications) within the context of their topic and will perform their research based on the collected resources. Each group will be given 20 minutes on their specified date (are listed in below) to represent the findings, and address the research questions of their own topic. Respectively, they will write and submit a scientific paper (IEEE template) with minimum 6 pages, depicting their findings and the main contribution of their work during seminar.
