FAQ Projects and Theses

Q: I heard that you group provides a Wiki with tipps on how to write a thesis. Where can I find it?
A: See here:

Q: How can I learn more about the projects you offer?
A: Get in touch; we are happy to tell you more about our projects. Please schedule a 30 Minute appointment here or send me an email.

Q: Is it possible to work on a project / thesis as a team? 
A: Yes, you can work together on a project, but the contributions of each team member have to be clearly separated. For the project "clearly separated" means that each member needs to address his/her own programming sub-project. For the thesis "clearly separated" means that each member addresses his/her own research questions and submits an individual thesis. If chapters contain contributions of the other team member, this needs to be clearly acknowledged, e.g., in a footnote in each affected chapter.

Q: Can I do my master's thesis with you although I didn’t attend one of your seminars or projects before?
A: Yes.

Q: Do you offer paid HiWi positions to students working on a project or thesis?
A: Yes, students working on certain topics as part of a master's thesis can be appointed to a paid HiWi position. We are happy to discuss the eligible topics and other details during a personal meeting.

Q: Is it possible to complete a project / thesis abroad?
A: Yes. Particularly, we offer paid internships with the National Institute of Informatics Tokyo. Read more...

Q: Can I suggest my own project idea?
A: Sure!

Q: How do I schedule a “Mentor talk”?
A: Please schedule a 30 Minute appointment here.




Students' Feedback

I worked with the Information Science Group during my bachelor thesis. Building upon the results of my thesis, the ISG team and I collaboratively wrote and published a research paper at the 2016 Joint Conference on Digital Libraries. I was given the opportunity to attend the conference and present the paper at the Rutgers University, Newark, which is part of the New York metropolitan area. Participating in the conference was a great opportunity for me to get to get to know the scientific community and learn about many interesting research projects. I could also spend some days exploring New York City after the conference had ended. Transforming my work into a research paper that received positive feedback at a conference has been a very rewarding experience and motivated me to aspire a career in research. - Malte Schwarzer

I compiled my master's thesis, supervised by Bela Gipp, on algorithms to identify influential work in academic documents. I completed large parts of the thesis during a research stay at the University of California, Berkeley. I enjoyed working with Bela and Norman on a daily basis and highly appreciate the valuable input they provided for my thesis. After my graduation, I returned to California to start a job at a tech company in San Francisco. - Julian Riediger
