Fachbereich »  Informatik »  Secure Identity »  Teaching »  Seminar Special Topics in Information Security



The seminar covers current topics and publications in the field of information security. This seminar has a faster pace than most seminars and its structure differs from the (German) norm.

Students are not given one topic on which they have to prepare and present a report near the end of the semester. Instead, all seminar participants must read the papers assigned for each meeting and be prepared to discuss them.

In a round-robin fashion, students must present one of the selected papers plus related work. Related work must be identified by the student. The presentations can be short, ranging from 5 minutes to 20 minutes, as long as the subsequent discussion is well-prepared and fruitful. Two papers will be presented per session provided there are enough participants.

Time and Location



Students will be graded on their preparedness for discussion, their presentations and their research proposal.
