Dr. Roland Wittler

Seminar: Wednesday, 10.15-11.45 in U10-146

Office hours: by arrangement

Office: U10-145

Based on original research papers, the participants will give oral presentations (20-45 min, optimally about 25 min's) and write short summaries (ca. 5 pages), both in English, about (not necessarily serious) algorithmic problems and their solutions. Each weak, we cover another aspect of scientific writing and put it into practice. Deadline for the written summary is one week after the presentation.
