In the tutored self-study part students delve into an individually selected topic and prepare a scientific publication in the form of a conference paper and give an oral presentation of the paper. The self-study part is supplemented by lectures on scientific writing and presentation. During an intermediate review at about half-term students submit and present their paper draft and get feedback and a paper review from the tutor. After final submission the student gets a review on the final paper and presents the paper.

SWS 4 in the summer term
