Course and Relation between Seminar and Project

The seminar is offered for Bachelor students to achieve an insight into selected topics and subdomains of the research area "Interactive Information Organization" with an emphasis on "Information Retrieval" and "Machine Learning". The assignment is to become acquainted with a chosen subdomain, hold a presentation and write a paper about this topic. In the end the Bachelor students receive 2SWS/3ECTS. Masters additionally have to do a small project worth 3ECTS. The seminar is offered for Master students as "Advanced Interactive Information Organization", which includes the project, therefore resulting in 4SWS/6ECTS.

Interested Persons

Please register yourself via LSF. The seminar and project is limited to 10 participants (usually 5 Bachelor and 5 Master students). We apply the scheme: "First Come, First Serve" (FCFS).

Information about the course can be found in the LSF portal.

A general reminder about exams: In accordance with the examination rules, we offer each student exactly one examination date (oral or written) each term. The registration for a follow-up examination is only possible in the next term (i.e. after 6 months). As soon as a student has registered for an exam, either by using the LSF for written exams or by filling in the information on an examination list for oral exams (or filling out a registration form), this is counted as the agreed examination date. If it is cancelled, the rule above applies.

The day of the final presentation counts as the examination date!
