This course targets students working on their bachelor's or master's theses. Every other week the course takes place both during winter and summer semesters regardless of lecture free time. In each session two students talk in fifteen minutes long presentations about the ongoing work in their final degree project. This can be done both in the form of formal slides or by simply going through the current draft of the thesis. By doing this, students can get informal feedback from peers to improve their presentation skills and overall thesis quality. Since the talks is planned for the last third of a thesis project this is also a valuable rehearsal opportunity before the final presentation of the thesis. A participation of the students is expected as part of a thesis project at the HPS group. The minimum participation is 50 % of all events in the period of the thesis work. In addition to thesis students, student assistants working in the AG-C share their practical experience working in an HPC enviroment.
