Course Description

Seminar I


Information and Communication Technologies, third-level study programme


prof. dr. Marko Debeljak


The goal of this reading seminar course is to give an overview of the major directions of research in the field of Information and Communication Technologies using both academic texts and current research scientific literature, with a strong preference for the latter.


Students are expected to gain a general understanding of the research activities in Information and Communication Technologies research area. They will get skills to evaluative published works in scientific literature, to write professional and scientific papers and to make a public presentation of their review seminar work.
