Seminar Robot Navigation

Requirements & Information

  • Organizer: Prof Dr. Wolfram Burgard
  • Co-Organizers: Tim Welschehold, Abhinav Valada, Alexander Schäfer, Tayyab Naseer, Andreas Eitel, Ayush Dewan, Camilo Andres Gordillo Chaves, Chao Do, Daniel Kuhner, Gabriel Oliveira, Lukas Luft, Marina Kollmitz, Michael Krawez, Noha Radwan, Stefano Di Lucia, Freya Fleckenstein Andreas Kuhner
  • The first meeting will take place on Thursday, November 10, 10.00 a.m. in room 00-019, building 079.
  • Students are requested to write a four-page abstract, prepare a talk of 20 minutes and to write a report. Everything is supposed to be done in English.
  • The four-page summary is due on December 15, 2016.
  • The Seminar will be held as a "Blockseminar" in the end of the Semester. The slides should be discussed with the supervisor two weeks before the presentation. The Presentations will take place on 31.1.2017 (full-day) and 2.2.2017 (morning).
  • The reports are due one week after the presentations and should be 7 pages long at maximum (latex, a4wide, 11pt) not counting the bibliography and figures. Significantly longer summaries will not be accepted. A LaTeX template can be downloaded here.
  • Wolfram Burgard will give a lecture on "How to give a presentation". This lecture will take place on Wednesday, December 21, 10.00 s.t. in SR 101-02-016/018.
  • The online evaluation of university lectures is still running until January 29. Students should have received an email to their personalized evaluation form for the seminar. Please help us optimize the seminar for the next years by giving us some feedback and fill out the forms until 01/29/2017.
