Oberseminar Cloud Computing, Data Management, and Data Centre Networking

I. Overview

The Oberseminar „Cloud Computing, Data Management, and Data Centre Networking” covers practical content from research and development in the context of state-of-the-art data centres. The seminar trains skills essential for research and, in addition, provides insight into applied computer science.

The participation in seminars like “Cloud Computing, Data Management and Data Centre Networking” is one of the prerequisites of the PhD Programme in Computer Science (PCS) of Georg-August-Universität Göttingen. An excerpt of the respective regulation for the PhD Programme in Computer Science is listed below (see paragraph IV.).

The seminar is further open to interested students and employees with a background in computer science and related fields from the Göttingen Campus.

II. Entrance criteria


III. Objectives

Each meeting will focus either on a thesis, a research topic, or a research project. In the first part, the contributor presents his or her work, progress, problems, future planning, or results. The presentation lasts 45 minutes. After that, the seminar attendees have the opportunity for discussion and sharing experience. The Oberseminar, in addition, offers the opportunity for young researchers to connect with other researchers and extend their scientific network.

Other skills like academic writing, presentation, public speaking, didactics in higher education, research methods, or software development will become part of the seminar in future semesters.
