Modus Operandi

Each paper will be assigned to one participant. We will have weekly meetings during the semester in which we will discuss one of the papers. The discussion will be managed by the student to whom the paper was assigned. She/He is responsible for giving a short summary on the paper and for structuring the following discussion.

Every week each student has to write a summary (300 - 500 words, about 1/2 to 1 page) on the week's paper. This summary should include open questions and is to be submitted to Clemens Hammacher two days before the corresponding meeting (Monday before 11:59 pm). The summaries of all participants will be made available and can be used by the moderator to structure the discussion in the following meeting.

At the end of the semester each participant will give a presentation (30 minutes) about her/his paper.

Each participant is allowed to drop two summaries without any particular reason. In case you drop a summary, please send a short mail telling so.
