General Information

If you want to participate in the seminar, please register with the form further down!


We organize the Tools Seminar in cooperation with the MathPhysInfo student representatives. The Tools Seminar provides an opportunity for scientists and students to get proficient information about certain tools useful for their study or research and to exchange their experience and knowledge about those tools with colleagues and fellow students. The term "tool" is understood in a broad sense ranging from tools useful when developing software to more general issues like how to give a good presentation.


Everybody is welcome to participate!
However, the Tools Seminar is particularly tailored for Master and PhD Students.


Particularly, the aim of the Tools Seminar is to provide profound information which go beyond the basic concepts that many people might already be familiar with. But each talk will also include at least a short introduction to allow the participants to learn about tools they might not have used before. So, no matter which level of experience you have with the tools presented, you should be able to learn something new in this seminar!
