Seminar Web Engineering (SS 2018)
Welcome to the homepage of the Seminar Web Engineering
This website contains all important information about the seminar, including links to available topics as well as information about the seminar process in general.
The interdisciplinary research area Web Engineering develops approaches for the methodological construction of Web-based applications and distributed systems as well as their continuous development (evolution). For instance, Web Engineering deals with the development of interoperable Web Services, the implementation of web portals using service-oriented architectures (SOA), fully accessible user interfaces or even exotic web-based applications that are voice controlled via the telephone or that are represented on TV and Radio.
The following steps are necessary to complete the seminar:
- Preparation of a presentation about the topic assigned to you.
- An additional written report of your topic.
- Each report is reviewed by two or three other particpants.
If you have any questions concerning this course or the exam as a participant, please contact us via OPAL.

The seminar opening took place on Thursday, 19 April 2018.
If you have not done this so far, please register in the VSR Seminar Workflow System.
The slides of the seminar opening are available here.
In your short presentation, you will provide a brief overview on your selected topic.
This includes the following aspects:
- What is in your topic?
- Which literature sources did you research so far?
- What is your idea for a demonstration?
The short presentation should be no longer than 3 slides (in addition to your title slide) and take max. 5 minutes. Following your short presentations, the advisors will provide you with feedback and hints for your full presentations.
Hints for your Presentation
- As rule of thumb you can plan for 2 minutes per slide. Significantly more slides per minute can be difficult to perceive for the audience.
- Prior to creating your presentation, you should think about: What should be the main message of my presentation? What should the audience remember after my presentation?
Based on these considerations you should create your presentation.
- Here you can find some useful hints http://www.garrreynolds.com/Presentation/
The seminar presentations will be held in half-day blocks. The dates will be announced here later.

- Check that your HTML is valid using the W3C Validator
- Each seminar participant has to review exactly three reports. The reviews are not anonymous.
- Use the review forms provided in the VSR Seminar Workflow, one per report.
- Following the review phase, each seminar participant will receive the three peer reviews of his report and, if necessary, additional comments by the advisors. You will then have one more week to improve your report according to this feedback.
- The seminar grade will consider the final report.
All comments in the reviews are for improving the text and therefore in the interest of the author.
