Note: The preliminary meeting will be on Wednesday November 4, 2020 at 3PM via Zoom. Please note that only students which participate in this meeting can be considered for this seminar! You may also come if you are on the waiting list, you may still get a place if some students do not show up (which usually happens). You can find a list of possible topics under https://www.ei.tum.de/lnt/lehrveranstaltungen/seminare/hauptseminar-digitale-kommunikationssysteme/. Please pick >>four<< of them and send your choice including priorities to Tobias Prinz latest until Wednesday, November 4, 2020 14:00. The topics will be assigned by the first come, first served principle.

Objectives

After successful completion, the students are able to familiarize with a scientific topic and summarize its core aspects. They can write scientific articles with appropriate structure and can present the core aspects in a short talk. Students have developed a general understanding of doing research.

Description

The seminar covers selected topics from the area of mobile communications and coding (e.g. coding for speech and video, multimedia transmission, multiple antenna systems, ad-hoc networks and channel coding). Each student prepares a written summary of a specific topic and gives a scientific presentation at the end.

Teaching and learning methods

Direct instruction of methods; reading for meaning (indirect instruction); writing essays (independent study); presentation and discussion (interactive instruction)

Examination

- A scientific report is to be submitted. - A presentation of 15 minutes will be followed by discussion and questions for 5-10 more minutes. The presentation should be kept general enough for all participants to understand, but the follow-up questions may be used to test for deeper understanding of the topic. The grade consists of 50% quality of report, 50% presentation
