Selected Topics in Communications Engineering

Institutes:
This seminar is jointly organized by the Institut für Nachrichtentechnik and the Institute of Communication Systems.

Contact: Sebastian Nagel, Erik Fleischhauer, and Christian Rohling

Type: Seminar with 3 or 4 SWS

Content:
In this seminar, advanced topics of communications technology and information transmission will be discussed. The focus will be on recent developments as well as aspects of system realization.

Organization:
Participating students work out different topics and present these in talks of about 25 minutes. Apart from the scientific and technical topics, the seminar also emphasizes on presentation skills. These are addressed in a Presentation Workshop which is held early in the semester.

Requirements:
Fundamental knowledge of communications engineering, e.g. from the lectures "Advanced Topics in Signal Processing and Communication", "Machine Learning for Speech and Audio Processing", "Digital Speech Transmission" or "Visual Media Communication". The number of participants is limited.

Materials: Starting material for the literature research will be provided.

Language: German / English
