The course aims at teaching the students to do a small research project in Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science (MFoCS) and give a seminar presentation about it. As such, this seminar is part of the MFoCS master specialisation.
At the start of the course, each teacher presents a few research papers. Each of the students then gives a preference among these papers and based on that gets assigned a paper and a supervisor. After this, the student searches for a second paper related to this paper, and studies both papers under the guidance of the supervisor. At the end of the course a presentation is given on both papers, in which their relation is presented as well. During these presentations students chair each other's sessions.
