We plan to offer the lecture as a in-person class. We will make an effort to record the lectures and make them available after each lecture, but there is no guarantee that every lecture will be recorded.

The schedule for the two lectures per week is as follows:

  • Tuesday 16:15-17:45 (HS 002)
  • Thursday 10:15-11:45 (HS 002)

Registration

Registration in this CMS is required until November 3, 2023. LSF exam registration is required to participate in the exams (and will be possible until ~1 week before the final exam).

Tutorials

We offer two tutorials (with the same content) per week:

  • Wednesday 10:15-11:45 (E9.1 005 -- CISPA Lecture Hall)
  • Friday 14:15-15:45 (E1.3 014)

Mental Health

Being a student is challenging and might be very overwhelming. If you need support during times of struggle, reach out to friends, family, or faculty you trust. The student union at UdS also offers a counseling service that you may contact. You do not have to go through this alone! If for whatever reason (e.g., a personal emergency) you cannot attend the lectures or deliver your work in time, please let us know and we will make appropriate arrangements.
