Master's Thesis Seminar WS 2022/23

339.505 Mössenböck, Prähofer Mo 15:30 - 17:00 S3 218 First meeting: Mo 09.10.2023, 15:30


Will be announced after the first meeting on October 9 where the dates will be fixed.

How it works

Every candidate gives 3 presentations over 2 semesters:

1. presentation (10 min.): Motivation, overview, preliminary ideas, existing solutions, time schedule
2. presentation (25-30 min.): Progress report, current architecture, first results
3. presentation (25-30 min.): Final results

It is mandatory to attend the Master's thesis seminar even if you do not give a presentation. You are expected to participate in the discussions and to provide feedback to the presenters.

Normally, you need 2 minutes per slide. Avoid slides which consist only of text bullets. Rather, present your ideas, algorithms, architectures, and user interfaces with pictures and examples if possible. Don't forget that there is also a whiteboard that you can use.

Don't waste too much time with a formal introduction and come to the point quickly. Concentrate on the concepts of your work and don't talk too much about details unless necessary. Make the presentation understandable to colleagues who are not specialists in your field. Your goal should be that your colleagues get new insights into your work and can take something home from your talk.
