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

Tutors: Matthias Schrammen, Sebastian Nagel, Mathias Wien, and Max Bläser

Type: Seminar with 3 or 4 SWS

Registration: Campus

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.

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. This workshop also provides an introduction into the technical topics of the seminar.

Fundamental knowledge of communications engineering, e.g. from the lectures "Kommunikationstechnik", "Information Theory and Source Coding", "Informationsübertragung" or "Signals, Systems and Communication". The number of participants is limited to 16 (SS) or 20 (WS), respectively.

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

Language: German / English


Introduction and topic assignment will take place on Wednesday, October 11th 2017 at 1:30pm in room 27 (MMR) of the IENT. A formal registration in the Campus system is required.

The integrated presentation workshop will take place on Friday, October 20th 2017  from 9am to 3:30pm in room 4G (IKS).

The seminar presentations will take place on four days in the last week of November and first week of December. The exact dates will be announced in the L2P.

All dates stated above are compulsory.
