As part of this seminar, you will create a presentation (and report) revolving around a research topic in German or English (your choice!). Therefore, you will meet regularly with an assigned supervisor and work towards the presentation and report.

This seminar is also available as pro-seminar. As pro-seminar, the focus will be on learning presentation techniques while in the seminar your focus must be on presenting scientific facts and leading a scientific discussion. There are also two additional mandatory sessions for pro-seminar attendees (optional for seminar attendees).

The presentation time is 45 minutes (incl. discussion). A short report accompanying the slides is expected (max 15 pages).

This is the list of topics that we will assign to students during the first meeting. You will have some room for developing the topic into the direction of your choice. Feel free to propose your own great topic.
