In this seminar, you will learn about research topics currently being tackled in the international Human-Computer Interaction research community. You will gain in-depth knowledge about one HCI area through your own seminar topic, and will learn about numerous others through other students' talks. You will work on your topic in groups of two, providing an opportunity to learn how to work more productively as a team.

Submission deadline of written seminar report for all topics
Your grade will be calculated as follows. Both parts have to be better than 5.0 to pass the course.
Fields of Study
- Informatik (M.Sc.)
- Media Informatics (M.Sc.)
- System Software Engineering (M.Sc.)
- Technik-Kommunikation (M.Sc.)
- Data Science (M.Sc.)
- Informatik Lehramt (M.Sc.)
- Erasmus (M.Sc.)
- Informatik (B.Sc.) (if you already attended a Proseminar)
To pass the course, you need to attend all presentations. We only accept absence in 10% of the events.
The RWTH CS library offers a course on literature review (Literaturrecherche für Informatiker). This course is mandatory for all Bachelor students to participate in our seminar.
Required Reading (before kick-off meeting):
"How to Read an Engineering Research Paper"
All submissions have to be sent to the supervisor until 12:00 (noon) via mail. Include the tag [PDUI] and the name of the topic and the milestone (e.g., "[PDUI] Explainable AI, Report Outline").
Literature Review & Outline
Prepare 10+ topic-related research papers with a 30 word contribution and benefits statement stating the contribution type. Provide a clear structure of the final paper submission. What is the storyline you want to convey? How are you introducing the topic? What are the arguments you are providing? How are you connecting the papers to each other and your arguments? Include your papers into this structure.
Paper Submission (50% of Grade)
Your paper submission should contain 15 content pages in the ACM Extended Abstract Template. We expect you to submit a final version without spelling mistakes, with a clear flow of argumentation, a complete bibliography, and including all figures.
You can download the template or set up a collaborative Latex project using Overleaf.
Camera-Ready Presentation Slides
The complete version of your presentation slides (Powerpoint, Keynote, Prezi, ....). Hand in slides which you would confidently use for a presentation on the next day.
Presentation (50% of Grade)
You present in front of your fellow students and your supervisor. We expect a well-prepared presentation. Test your talk at least once in the room where you are going to present to familiarise yourself with the equipment and test your slides on the projector in the room. Presentation time will be 7 minutes per student, followed by questions from our side and a discussion where you will receive feedback from your supervisor and your peers. We encourage a constructive feedback interaction where you can learn from each other and have a friendly conversation on how to improve your presentation style.
After your presentation, we will meet to give you feedback on your paper submission.
For the milestones "Literature Review and Report Outline", "Test Presentation" and "Paper Feedback" you can get feedback from your supervisor. For this, make an appointment for that day.
