General information

The seminars offered by the chair generally take place during summer term. Participants have to write a seminar paper and subsequently present the paper in the seminar. M.Sc. students (PO 2010) additionally have to write an exam.

Topics are assigned at the end of winter term, whereas the seminar itself takes place at the beginning of summer term. Usually the group spends the three days of the seminar at Frauenchiemsee or another conference venue. In the last years, the expenses to be covered by the participants were approx. 160,- € per person.
