Difference: SeminarHD (r19 vs. r18)

WS 2016-2017: Master seminar - Particle tracking and identification at high rates

Modus operandi:

  • 6 ECTS credit points == 180 hours of your work
  • includes: literature research, preparation of your presentation, write up (10-12 pages), weekly attendance


  • First meeting with students on 21.10.2016 - assignment of topics
  • Every Friday at 14:00, at the Physikalisches Institut, room 1.106
  • Seminars start on Friday 18.11.2016 and will continue until the beginning of February 2017
    • 60 minutes for the seminar and discussions
    • possibility to have an additional hands-on session (~30 min), depending on the availability of ALICE data and material
  • regular meetings meet at least 6 weeks before your presentation with students to your supervisor prepare the seminars: Wednesdays with Silvia, Kai, Marian and Federica
  • we will hand out literature, not exhaustive, please feel free to uses inspire, wikipedia, cern web sites, ...
  • 4 weeks before your presentation: rough structure of presentation should exist
  • regular meetings with students (3-4x) to prepare the seminars, includinga rehearsal: Wednesdays with Silvia, Kai, Marian and Federica
