The seminar deals with selected topics in the field of Information Systems. The students get an extensive overview of recent research-relevant issues in Information Systems. Splitted into groups of twos or threes the students work on a selected topic and present the results in a written seminar thesis as well as during a presentation. In order to increase networking among the students peer reviews of the thesis of another group have to be submitted.
The seminar is planned as a block course. Depending on individual interest, working on the topic may already start during semester break or else take place during the first half of the semester.
The course language is English, students have the explicit opportunity to request supervision, to write the thesis and present the topic in English.
The topics are formulated in a way that allows students to pursue them further during writing their final degree thesis at the Institute of Information Systems.
Different topics will be made available.
The list of topics and information on organizational issues will be provided during an introductory session at the beginning of July. During this session students will also receive central references concerning each topic in order to enable them to an appropriate topic introduction. More topics will be proposed as needed in order to allow students an appropriate choice. There is also the option to contribute your own topic and eventually work on it after consulting the supervisor.
Reference recommendations are given for the specific topics during topic provision. Please consult the topic list for further recommendations.
