- Formal guidelines for the written thesis are provided in the Ilias folder.
- Orthography, grammar and style of the thesis will be taken into account for grading.
- We suggest to use Latex to prepare the thesis and the presentation. The zip-file contains a document "vorlage.tex" which illustrates the use of Latex and provides installation information. "vorlage.pdf" is the result when compiling the tex-file.
- The presentation of the final thesis has to be in Powerpoint, Latex or similar. There is no need for handouts.
Plagiarism and academic fraud
It is strictly forbidden to: i) copy/paste text from existing publications outside a regular quote, ii) copy essential thoughts or structures from existing work without acknowledging their sources, iii) use substantial external help in carrying out research or writing without acknowledging this, iv) produce fake research results. Any violations of these rules may lead to exmatriculation. Academic fraud may also destroy your career if discovered later in your life. We will use software to detect potential academic misconduct.
