Additional information

This course takes place at the same time and location as the other "Seminars of Geoscience", announced by the other research groups of the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation (except cartography). This course does NOT take place regularly EVERY WEEK. There is a separate TISS entry for every research group, administrative details and seminar dates are listed in the geoinformation entry only:

120.020 Seminar of Geosciences (Advanced Geodesy)
120.025 Seminar of Geosciences (Geoinformation) <-- seminar dates are here!
120.037 Seminar of Geosciences (Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing)
120.040 Seminar of Geosciences (Engineering geodesy)
120.049 Seminar of Geosciences (Geophysics)

Please register here but (if possible) also for the seminar with the name/number that you are interested in. This helps the research groups to find out how many topics will be necessary.

The seminar will be held in presence. Upon prior notice, individual sessions can be held in distance learning mode if required by the circumstances.

The first meeting is for creating the presentation schedule. If possible, topics for presentations should be arranged with the advisor before the first meeting. However, there will be some topics available for ERASMUS students.
