  • The first meeting will be on Oct. 27 at 10:30 in our seminar room (MI 03.13.010).


In this Master Seminar (formerly Hauptseminar), each student is asked to select one topic from the list below. In order to successfully complete the seminar, participants have to fulfill these requirements:

  • Presentation: The selected paper is presented to the other participants (20 minutes presentation 10 minutes questions). Use the CAMP templates for PowerPoint CAMPmaster.pot.
  • Written Handout: A document of maximum 8 two-column pages in IEEE format is written and submitted one week after the presentation.
  • Attendance: Participants have to participate actively in all seminar sessions.

Each presentation is followed by a discussion and everyone is encouraged to actively participate. The handout must include all references used and must be written completely in your own words. Copy and paste wont be tolerated. Both handout and presentation have to be done in English.


Interested students, please take a look at the papers listed below and select one you would like to base your seminar talk on. Registration is done via TUM-Online. Then please send an email to Mehmet Yigitsoy (), including your paper choice, your name, your birthday, program of study and Matrikelnummer.


We will have an introduction to the seminar course in the first session. Students are expected to pick their topics by the second session.

  • Thu, 27.10.2011, 10:30 - 12:00

Some further hints for working with references:

  • JabRef is a Java program for comfortable working with Bibtex literature databases. Handy feature: if you know the PubMed ID for an article, JabRef can import data from there (via "Web Search/Medline").
  • Mendeley is a cross-platform program for organising your references.

If you find useful resources that are not already listed here, please tell us, so we can add them for others. Thanks.
