Seminar Software Composition

This is a hybrid teaching unit, it will partially be held online, partially in class.

This is a seminar for Bachelors, Masters and PhD students completing their project work or thesis in the Software Composition Group. Scheduled talks generally present recent progress in project work or research.

Students taking this as a regular seminar will work on a small, supervised project during the semester. Due to the high cost of supervision, participation is strictly limited (selection will be based on the results of a short quiz).
