First meeting: Friday, February 13, 2009, 14:15, Bld. E1 1, Room 306

Sign-up deadline: Thursday, February 12, 2009.

Regular meetings during summer term 2009:
None, by appointment.

Date of first meeting within the semester was: Tuesday, April 28th.

REGISTRATION: You can enroll here for the lecture from Thu, Feb. 05, 2009, 4 PM to Mon, Mai. 18, 2009, 2 PM.

Contents: The list of topics can be found here.

Prerequisites: The seminar is suitable for students of visual computing, mathematics, and computer science with a basic background in mathematics and image analysis.

Language: Understanding scientific texts in English is indispensable. Talks and write-up can be in English or German.

Sessions: The first meeting took place Friday, February 13, 2009, 14:15h, Bld. E1.1, room 306. There will be a few sessions on saturdays during the semester by appointment. Participants, please read your email.

Regular attendance: It is expected that you attend all seminar meetings, except for provable important reasons (we check).

Talk: Talk duration is 30 min, plus 15 min for discussion. Please do not deviate significantly from this time schedule.
You may give a presentation using a data projector (»beamer«), overhead projector or blackboard, or mix these media appropriately. English is preferred as language of presentation; if you should decide to talk in German anyway, you must use slides in English.

Write-up: The write-up should summarise your talk, so some 3+ pages per speaker will be adequate in most cases. Electronic submission is preferred. File format for electronic submissions is PDF – text processor files (like .doc) are not acceptable. We recommend using LaTeX. Adhere to the standards of scientific referencing: Quotations and copied material (such as images) must be clearly marked as such, and a bibliography is required.

Mandatory consultation: Talk preparation has to be presented to your seminar supervisor not later than in the week before the talk is given. It's your responsibility to approach us timely and make your appointment!

The speakers at the 18th of July need to be confirmed by now.
