Seminar Humanoid Robots

  • In this seminar, we will cover state-of-the-art research papers from conferences and journals in the field of humanoid robotics.
  • Topics will be assigned in the first meeting.
  • You have to prepare a talk of approx. 30 minutes and to write a summary with discussion. Both can be done in English or German.
  • The summary and discussion should be about 7 pages long (latex, a4wide, 11pt). For the 7 page limit, we just count the text, not the images and references.
