Wearable and Networked Embedded Systems, Seminar, 4 ECTS, 2 SWS

Contact: { kristof , pscholl } @ ese.uni-freiburg.de


In this seminar, a set of papers will be discussed in groups on current topics in the research fields of wearable and networked embedded systems. The goal is to train students' skills to read research papers, present the knowledge that they distilled from them, and write up a short survey paper. Each group reads papers on a certain topic, and presents their progress every two weeks -- these presentations are evaluated by the other students. At the end of the semester, this work is summarized in a survey paper. The report of last year's seminar can be found here.


We are mostly keeping to papers from these conferences: ISWC, UbiComp, Sensys, EWSN
Use these tools to explore cited and citing papers from there: Google scholar, Allen AI's Semantic Scholar
or these listings to get access to papers: ACM DL, IEEE Xplore, DBLP
