info  Mixed-Integer Programming and Combinatorial Optimizationvarious Feb 10-13, 2014, 09:00-16:00 ECTS-Points: 2
Abstract, registration & information:
The course gives an introduction into concepts and algorithms of mixed-integer programming and combinatorial optimization.

Topics are linear programming and duality, polyhedral theory, postoptimal analysis, mixed-integer modelling, computation of optimal solutions, polyhedral combinatorics and combinatorial
polytopes, implementation of branch-and-cut algorithms, valid inequalities and cuts.

Two invited speakers will give a detailed presentation of two practical applications of mixed-integer models. In the afternoons of the first two days participants will learn how to model problems and solve them with commercial software.

Abstract, registration & information:
Objectives:
gain familiarity with some essential pattern recognition techniques. These are essential tools to address problems in prediction, tracking and exploratory data analysis.

Content:
mostly pattern recognition techniques that can be formulated as directed probabilistic graphical models:
- logistic regression
- Gaussian mixture models
- Hidden Markov models
- Kalman filter
- topic models
plus applications and inference schemes

Prerequisites:
basic notions of probability theory (joint distribution, marginal distribution). There will be a brief reminder, but it helps to have studied these beforehand.

Abstract, registration & information:
Description
In this key competence course we will utilize Osterwald_s Business Model canvas and Customer Value Canvas as strategic management and entrepreneurial tools. The process and tools will allow us to invent, describe, design and challenge our business models - from a vague idea to a blueprint fuelling a business plan.

Goals: You will learn about and apply a practical language to describe challenge and design business models. You will discover powerful examples for business model innovation. You will explore and prototype business models to boost future growth of your idea, project or solution.

Content:
- The common ground of profitable business models
- On finding a business model language
- A design thinking attitude
- testing and perpetuating business models.

info  Fit im Vorstellungsgespräch und im Assessment Center: Unter Druck gelassen bleibenMichael Müller & Maximilian Scheidt Oct. 29, 2013, 9:00-17:00 ECTS-Points: 1
Abstract, registration & information:
Absolventen der Naturwissenschaften haben nicht nur das Vorstellungsgespräch im Bewerbungsprozess vor der Brust, sondern werden oftmals mit einem Assessment Center (AC) konfrontiert. Mit Hilfe von verschiedenen Übungen und Aufgaben werden die Fähigkeiten und Kompetenzen der AC-TeilnehmerInnen im Rahmen eines Bewerberauswahlverfahrens eingeschätzt. Ziel dieses Workshops ist es, den Teilnehmern sicheres und überzeugendes Auftreten sowohl im Vorstellungsgespräch als auch im AC beizubringen.

Inhalt
Das Training bietet nach einer sehr kurzen theoretischen Einführung zum Thema Assessment Center die Möglichkeit, einzelne Übungen zu durchlaufen. Einige Sequenzen werden für Feedbackrunden gefilmt, wie z.B. die persönliche Vorstellung vor Gruppen. Die TeilnehmerInnen lernen souveränes Auftreten vor Gruppen, in Drucksituationen gelassen zu bleiben und überzeugender zu argumentieren. Ziel ist es Körpersprache und Gesagtes zu harmonisieren. Sie trainieren u. a. Selbstpräsentation und Gruppendiskussionen, Rhetorik sowie wichtige Aufgaben aus Gruppenauswahlverfahren wie z.B. Rollenspiele. Ebenso werden Teile des Vorstellungsgespräches simuliert. Darüber hinaus erhalten die Teilnehmer Informationen zu den Erwartungen der Personalverantwortlichen.

In einem separaten Gespräch erhält jede(r) TeilnehmerIn ein ausführliches, individuelles Feedback, um sich verbessern zu können.

Abstract, registration & information:
Target group:
Members of the university who have to talk a lot and are interested in improving their voice competences in communication.

Aims:
The workshop contains manifold exercises for a healthy and powerful voice. Learning how your own voice can be used as a strong communication and expression tool. As well as experiencing the influence of a physiological breathing and posture that affects your expressiveness during presentations and communication.

Contents of the seminar:
* Exercises that aim for the improvement of vocal sound, resonance, dynamics and articulation
* Individual voice analysis and consultation
* Practice of the acquired skills in lecture or talk
* Developing an improved perception of your own and foreign voices
* Facts about physiological aspects of the voice (for example process of voice production and health of the voice)
