252-5251-00L Seminar in Computational Science
Spring semester 2018

Tuesday 15-17, CAB G52
2 ECTS credits

In this students seminar participants read and present a basic paper from the area of Computational Science and Engineering. The topics of the talks are suggested by the professors in the first week of the semester. The students have to choose a paper (talk) right away. The 30 minutes talk is to be prepared in interaction with the responsible professor. It is to be presented to the professor in advance. The talk should be presented such that the fellow students can follow. Participants have to attend all talks.
