Seminars

This class is usually taught by Markus Schedl, Andreas Arzt, Rainer Kelz and Matthias Dorfer in the summer and the winter term. The class is taught in English.

We usually offer 1-2 seminars (Seminar in Computational Engineering, Seminar in Data Science, Seminar in Intelligent Information Systems, Seminar in Networks and Security and Seminar in Pervasive Computing) per semester. If you need a different seminar than we currently offer, please contact us.
