Winter term 2020/2021

Title Digital Literacy in Research and Teaching (online)
Description There exist a lot of tools to make our work in research, teaching, and co-working in groups with other students or researchers easier and more effective, for example how to find bugs in our code faster using debugging tools, how to keep track of our change history with a version control system, or how to visualize our results in a convincing way. Especially in times of the Corona pandemic, when most people including students and researchers worked from home, it became clear that teaching knowledge and skills to work with these tools is a significant part of a scientific environment. Previously, these skills were often shown to students in personal meetings in the scope of a student thesis. In this lecture, various principles and tools are introduced, which are helpful in the context of scientific work in general and scientific programming in particular.

Title Programming Skills for Simulation Software (online)
Lecturer Bernd Flemisch, Ralf Diesterkämper, Sybille Hermann
Language English
Topic Refining and evaluating simulation models frequently requires implementing simulation software. To accelerate the implementation process, this seminar aims at improving your programming skills. If you already have basic coding experience in Python, Java, Scala or C/C++, you can refine your programming skills in hands-on implementation tasks on popular data-structures and algorithms in computer science. In weekly online sessions, you are given 1 to 3 programming tasks that you should solve in a sandbox environment and discuss with the group. The amount and difficulty of the tasks is dynamically adapted based on the participants’ skills and feedback.
Time Start:
Tuesday 15:45-17:15 CEST
Starting May 26th via WebEx
Proof of Attendance Regular online presence and active participation in discussions
Registration If you like to participate, please contact The seminar is limited to 10 participants.
