Description

A research project deals with research and innovation. The research conducted in a research project is part of the research focus of the institute. It can involve e.g., writing a survey article covering the latest developments in a field, extending or improving an algorithm and conducting systematic empirical tests, or theoretical work such as analyzing an algorithm or proving a theorem. The student needs to write a scientific report explaining the results of the research project.
The research project is executed under the supervision of a research staff member at LIACS. Research project topics are provided within the master class, as well as by directly speaking with individual supervisors.
