After a successful ITIS Welcome Day at the L3S in Hanover, it was already the second event of this kind, aiming to bring together ITIS students from all four universities as well as enabling a mutual exchange.
Even more clearly than at the launch event in April, research was moved into the focus of attention. Divided into two major topics, in the first block four ITIS students presented their research projects through a poster session:
Kinda El Maarry – Skyline Queries in Crowd enabled databases
Tu Ngoc Nguyen – ASEV (automated event-driven video stream analysis)
Claudia Maribel Orellana Rodriguez – LivingKnowledge
Jaspreet Singh – Evolution of LearnWeb2.0
The second block was devoted to both, positive and critical feedback from the ITIS students: After a discussion with the ITIS coordinator, they communicated their impressions of the different lectures/seminars as well as suggestions for improvement together with the lecturers.
Highlights at the end of the official part of the event were a rally through the city of Braunschweig, which was enthusiastically attended by the students, as well as a visit of the " TU-Night ", which put an excellent final to a great day.
The next ITIS Welcome Day will be held on 12th October 2012 in Clausthal, the next ITIS Research Day in February 2013 (date to be announced) in Göttingen.
