Course structure and grading
The course is structured as a standard seminar. Every week, one to two students will present assigned papers on a single topic, which we will then discuss. Prior to this, all students are expected to read the papers carefully and prepare a list of discussion questions. Additionally, every student will write a short report on their assigned papers, in which the presentation should be elaborated in more details and potentially including results of the discussion. Grading will be based on the presentations, report, and general in-class participation
Registration and pre-requisites
There are no formal pre-requisites beyond a basic knowledge of how computer systems work internally. Having worked with a smartphone as user or app developer, or participation in the Advanced Lecture Mobile Security are beneficial.
Registration for the course is mandatory and done via the CISPA meta-registration for ProSeminars
