In this seminar, we will cover various topic about how to model a visual programming language in some area such as in Robotics, Education, Imperative Programming Language, etc.

Seminar structure

This seminar will be conducted as a paper reading group with weekly meetings.

Each week one of the students is the discussion leader, who familiarizes herself/himself with the paper’s content in greater depth. The other participants should also read the paper, prepare questions, and send them to the discussion leader.

During the session, the discussion leader will summarize the main points of each section, be ready to answer the other participants’ questions, keep the discussion on track, and point out additional insights gained by her/his in-depth preparation.

At the end of the semester, each participant will write a term paper on the topic she/he prepared as discussion leader. It is also possible to accompany this with some artefact, e.g. a mini software project, that showcases practical applications discussed in the term paper.
