VSR News 2018
Starting again in 2019, we offer all our VSR students the great opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences in our LAKS meetings.
Become part of LAKS, if you
- want to learn and try out topics that are not covered in any regular lecture
- like to work with other students in an informal, exciting way
- have questions and answers on study related topics that you want to exchange with others
- ask for feedback on an upcoming project or presentation.
LAKS is our way for effective Learning And Knowledge Sharing.
Our VSR group therefore provides
- a mailing list email@example.com where you can subscribe here
- a regular meeting place each Wednesday ar 11:00 in our VSR lab 1/B203
LAKS works in an agile, unsupervised, self-organizing, facultative and open-space fashion.

The lectures for SSE, XML, Planspiel and Current Trends in Web Engineering will not be conducted this week and are going to be postponed to the following week. Also the corresponding tutorials will not take place and will be continued in the week after.
The lecture for EVS is going to be conducted regularly.
In this workshop, we worked together with the group of Prof. Dr. Sören Auer and other researchers on new visionary ways for structured scientific publishing by using Linked Data.
Our VSR research team was able to support this project with our expertise in human-centered approaches to frontend input interfaces for the collection of Linked Data and the encouragement of users to provide qualitative meta data for scholarly artefacts.
This is to remind you that there will be no VSR lectures for all students on Tuesday, 20 November 2018.
Wednesday is a public holday in Germany, so there will also be no Planspiel session. Instead, all Planspiel teams will already meet on Monday, 19 November at 17:15 in room 1/204.
The tutorial for XML on Thursday, 22 November and Friday, 23 November will not take place and is postponed to the following week.
The tutorial for EVS will be conducted in a central fashion on Tuesday, 20 November 2018 at 13:30 in 1/219 as a substitution for both the Wednesday and Friday group in that week.
The tutorial for SSE will be conducted regularly on Friday, 23 November at 11:30.
The project focus for all Planspiel teams as well as a list of competitors in the same knowledge domain can be found on our VSR website at
We expect from each team a first pitch on its topic between 26 Nov and 28 Nov.
The presentation time per team is limited to 10 minutes sharp.
We will provide further details to all teams in advance.
Next week, there will be no Planspiel session. Neither on Monday nor on Wednesday. Each team should use the time to become familiar with the problem domain.
In the following week, there will be a Planspiel lecture on Monday, 19 Nov at 17:15 in room 1/204.
The lecture will focus on Design thinking and on how to prepare a first presentation.
The final pitches are going to take place in the first week of March 2019. The final pitch time is expected to be 30 minutes.
