Block Seminar Information

The first day of the seminar will start at 09:00, while on the second day, we will start at 09:15. We will end at 18:25 on both days. Please use the in-between time as well as the lunch break to test whether the system works. During the second day's lunch break, we will use 15 minutes (i.e. 12:00-12:45 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 receive 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. The session chair usually asks a question of their own first, allowing the audience time to formulate their questions. You can think of the session chair role as the "moderator" of the discussion.

Max Planck Institute for Software Systems
Building E1 5
Lecture room 029


Location for the second day:
