Each semester a topic from the fields of communications engineering, information theory, and signal processing and its related disciplines is addressed.
The seminar is intended to master students in Electrical Engineering, specializing in "Communications", and in Communications Technology, track "Communications Engineering".
The seminar requires active contributions of the students. Within the current general subject area of the seminar, each student is assigned a specific topic. He acquires knowledge in this field, such that he can present the material in a clear and structured way to his class mates. He summarizes the material in his own words in a short report. The rules for "Rules of Good Scientific Practice" (http://www.uni-ulm.de/index.php?id=47380) have to be obeyed; in particular, any form of plagiarism is not tolerated.
Each participant is assumed to
- write a brief report (6 to 8 pages) on the topic,
- give a presentation (25 minutes) on his assigned topic, and
- actively participate at all other talks and contribute to the discussion.
