Master and Diploma Theses, Programming Systems Lab, Prof. Gert Smolka

If you are interested in a topic for a thesis, please contact Prof. Smolka or a researcher of the Lab whose work you find interesting.

As part of your thesis work, you will participate in our Graduate Seminar. You will give two talks in your seminar phase and one final talk after submitting your thesis. The first and second talk are 20 minutes each, the final talk is 30 minutes, always plus discussion time.

When you start your thesis work, your advisor will provide you with a problem specification (1 page). You will maintain a web page devoted to your thesis work. The problem specification, the thesis and related software and documentation will be made available through this page (see examples below).

Since 2001, FdSI annually awards the Günther-Hotz-Medaille to the best graduates of the Master Program. So far, 5 students with theses advisors from our lab won: Manuel Bodirsky (2001), Jan Schwinghammer (2002), Guido Tack (2003), Mark Kaminski (2006), and Cătălin Hriţcu (2007). Who will be the next?
