(Advanced) Seminars an lab courses

Here you'll find current offerings and information concerning the registration for Seminars (Bachelor), advanced seminars (Master) and lab courses (Master)

Every semester, the Department of Computer Science offers seminars, advanced seminars and practical courses on a wide range of topics. As this offer is constantly changing, you will find the current offer for the semester in question further down on this page under the respective heading.

Registration for the seminars and advanced seminars is done individually in C@mpus. There is no central registration (anymore). Registration for the practical courses is explained below.

The registration for the laboratory/practical courses takes place in the ILIAS repository under "Ingenieurwissenschaften" → "Informatik". There you will find the course "Informatik-Marktplatz". In this course there is a folder named "07 - Registrierung für Fachpraktika / Registration for Lab courses" and in this folder there is 1 subfolder:

  • Fachpraktika / Lab Courses (Master) Summer 2024

This folder is already open for registration. The registration will run as follows:

  • You have to create a personal ranking list / chart for the laboratory/practical courses.
  • This personal ranking list / chart has to be uploaded in the folder in ILIAS. How exactly the chart has to look like will be explained in the next flag.
  • An algorithm will calculate the best mapping of the students to the laboratory courses, taking into account the individual ranking.
  • The registration (= the deadline for uploading the individual ranking list / chart) is open until Tuesday, 05.03.2024, including.

After the registration is closed the algorithm will assign the students to the courses taking into account the individual ranking for the respective course type. You will be informed about the results of the selection process via email. Afterwards the lecturers will receive the list of participants and then get in contact with you to talk about meetings and the available individual topics. Furthermore, please check the pdfs of the call of each course (if available) for possible additional information or restrictions.

Please create an excel chart named FamilyName-FirstName.xls with the following contents:

first name last name matricul. no. email no. labcourse at 1. choice no. labcourse at 2. choice ...

Here is a download example as xlsx-file or as ods-file.

Under the headline "No. labcourse at 1. choice" please enter the number of the lab course that is on 1st place in your individual ranking list. Under the headline "No. labcourse at 2. choice" please enter the number of the lab course that is on 2nd place in your individual ranking list, and so on. Please use the number of the respective lab course, which can be found on the web page, not the title.

The ranking list has to be uploaded into the lab course folder in ILIAS. Please make sure that the uploaded file has your name to better distinguish the different uploads from each other.

  • Please note: some lab courses have obligatory prerequisites. If you do not fulfill these prerequisites the lecturer can suspend you from participation even when you have got a seat.
  • Exam Registration:
    • The exam registration has to be done by the students during the general exam registration period of the University of Stuttgart in the C@mpus system. You have to register for the advanced seminar or Lab course in your program and select the correct examiner. He / she is mentioned on the call of the course.
  • De-registration:
    1. A de-registration from any of the courses is only possible until the end of the exam registration period and only after informing the lecturer about it.
    2. Any de-registration after the end of the exam registration period leads to a "fail" in the course as well as to the consequences mentioned under section 3.
    3. Any de-registration after the end of the exam registration period causes that the student will only get a place on a waiting list on any further registration to lab courses for the next 2 semesters.
    4. A de-registration due to illness has to be approved by the examinations board. If the examinations board gives the permission to de-register, this will not lead to the consequences mentioned in the section above.
