(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)

Each semester the department of Computer Science offers a variety of seminars, advanced seminars and lab courses / practical courses. The registration for these courses always takes place in the preceding semester via ILIAS. Hints concerning who can attend what kind of course can be found below on this page. Please note that students are not allowed to attend more than one course from each of the offered kinds of courses.

The registration for all these 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 "Seminaranmeldung / Seminar registration" and in this folder there are 3 subfolders:

  • 1 - Seminare (Bachelor) Winter 2022/23
  • 2 - Hauptseminare / Advanced seminars (Master) Winter 2022/23
  • 3 - Fachpraktika / Lab Courses (Master) Winter 2022/23

These folders are already open for registration. The registration will run as follows:

  • You have to create a personal ranking list / chart for the type of course you are interested in (thus: one for the advanced seminars and/or (another) one for the laboratory courses).
  • This personal ranking list / chart has to be uploaded in the respective folder in ILIAS (thus: in the folder "advanced seminars" or in the folder "laboratory courses", respectively). 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 advanced seminars or laboratory courses, taking into account the individual ranking.
  • The registration (= the deadline for uploading the individual ranking list / chart) is open until Wednesday, 13.07.2022 (including Wednesday).

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.

For each type of course you apply for (i.e. for advanced seminars and lab courses), please, create a separate excel chart named "FamilyName-FirstName" with the following contents:

first name last name matricul. no. email no. Adv. seminar at 1. choice no. Adv. seminar at 2. choice ...

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

Under the headline "No. advanced seminar at 1. choice" please enter the number of the advanced seminar that is on 1. place in your individual ranking list. Under the headline "No. advanced seminar at 2. choice" please enter the number of the advanced seminar that is on 2. place in your individual ranking list, and so on. Please always use the number of the respective advanced seminar, which can be found on this web page, e.g. number "7" for the advanced seminar "Emerging Architectures".

Hint: When you decide not to include all offered e.g. advanced seminar it may happen that the algorithm will not find a place for you in the courses you prefer. Then you'll be on the waiting list only. Thus it is recommendable to include all offered courses to the ranking. However, when there are courses you really do not want to attend, then it makes no sense to add these to your individual ranking. The laboratory courses have to be handled the same way, if you want to attend one of them: you have to create a separate ranking list.

The ranking list has to be uploaded into the sub-folder of the course type in ILIAS, respectively: i.e. in "Advanced seminars" for the registration for advanced seminars and so on. Please make sure that the uploaded file has your name to better distinguish the different uploads from each other.

  • How to get a seat:
    • The lecturers are allowed to offer up to 6 places in the advanced seminars to particularly interested students. These students will be selected by the lecturer according to the list of applicants for his/her course. If so, only 8 places will be assigned by the algorithm. The lecturer can select people from this list of applicants only. Thus, if you have contacted a lecturer and he/she agreed that you will be one of these 6 students that can be selected individually, then make sure that this advanced seminar has the highest preference in your ranking. Otherwise the lecturer may nit find you and selects somebody else
    • Please note: some advanced seminars or lab courses habe 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.
    • For the advanced seminar there is a specific place holder in each program ("seminar INFOTECH" or "advanced seminar compoter science"). You have to find this is your program and register with the correct examiner. He / she is mentioned on the call of the course.
    • For lab courses often there is a place holder as well, i.e. the title of the lab course is not always identical to the exam title. When in doubt how to register, please contact Katrin Schneider.
  • De-registration:
    1. A de-registration from any of the courses without consequences is only possible until 14 days after the internal distribution of the topics of the respective course. The lecturer / examiner has to be informed about this de-registration.
    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 (or disappearing) later than 14 days after the distribution of the course topics and previous to the start of the exam registration period causes that the student will only get a place on a waiting list on any further registration to this course type 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.
