Seminar Humanoid Robots (MA-INF 4213)

    • 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 online after the first meeting (see registration instructions below).
    • 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.
