Learning From The Best

We invite you to get to know the latest diploma theses at Epilog. The jury, chaired by Margrit Gelautz and consisting of Stefan Biffl, Martin Kampel, Wolfgang Kastner and Florian Zuleger will select the four best graduates. The four candidates will compete against each other by presenting their diploma theses. Those who convince the jury will receive the Distinguished Young Alumna/Alumnus Award endowed with € 1,500.

A comprehensive poster exhibition will allow visitors to see for themselves the achievements of all the graduates of the summer semester. The best poster will be awarded a prize worth € 500. We cordially invite especially students from younger semesters to get inspiration for their own work. Maybe one of you will soon be nominated for a presentation at Epilog?

Bachelor With Honors

Since the last Epilog, we use the festive opportunity to award the graduates of our excellence program Bachelor with Honors certificates. Introduced in 2017, the supplementary Bachelor’s program offers outstanding students opportunities to explore their talents and to be involved with scientific research in an early stage of their academic careers.

Keynote Presenter

It has become a tradition to invite people from our discipline to give a keynote, and we are happy to be welcoming Daniela Nicklas (University of Bamberg) on 25 June. Daniela will talk about ”The Bamberg CS30 Strategy - Encouraging female students since 2005“, a roadmap to promote women in Informatics.
