Dear students,

this event will take place as planned in the summer semester 2020. However, there will be a virtual kick-off this semester. You will find more information about this kick-off after the registration in Studon.

The seminar won’t be taught by Prof. Bui as usual, because of the current situation. Thus, you will get topic suggestions from us.
