Block Seminar Information

The first day of seminar starts at 12:00, and the 2nd and 3rd day starts at 09:30. Please use the in-between time as well as the lunch break to test whether the system works. During the lunch break of the second day, we will use 15 minutes (i.e. 12:45-13:00 CET) to check your student IDs - please have them ready.

Please remember that your activity (questions, comments, etc.) during the seminar will influence your grade. We expect each student to be present during the entire seminar (all days) unless they received an exemption from us.


Session Chairs

Each student has to "chair" another student's presentation. A session chair starts with introducing the talk and organizes the Q&A at the end of the session. It is most commonly seen that a session chair first asks a question of their own—this allows the audience to formulate their questions. You can think of the session chair role as the "moderator" of the discussion.


All three days will take place in the lecture hall of the MPI-INF:
Max Planck Institute for Informatics
Building E1 4
Lecture room 019 on the entrance level.



While all students have to participate (mandatory) during the entire seminar, the individual student talks are scheduled as follows:
