Internet Science at TUM seminars in Summer 2013

As a consequence of the EINS project, TUM started to hand out Internet Science topics in addition to traditional computer science topics to students in their seminars. The Internet Science topics are meant to have a computer science and a non-computer science side. The goal is to raise understanding and awareness of the interdisciplinary aspects found almost everywhere once computer science meets practise and systems get used. Seminars include a student presentation, a review process, and a seminar paper. Some of the student papers are published in the end in seminar proceedings. Students can chose to write in English or German language. This will be continued in the winter term.

In our 2013 summer term most Internet Science topics centered around critical infrastructure aspects, from technical aspects like their operation to social aspects like risk perception and management. The proceedings from the summer term can be found unter:
