# Date and Location of the 6th Seminar

The seminar will take place on

**February 4th, 2014at 1700 hrs**

in** room 432 **of the IWR building (INF 368).

After the talks there will be **pizza and cold drinks in the common room 514**.

# Speakers and Abstracts

This time, we have two speakers:

*** Dr. Christoph Zimmer (Bioms, COS) **

who will inform us about his research entitled:

"Methods for parameter estimation and experimental design for stochastic models of biochemical reactions."

My talk will introduce stochastic modeling and illustrate its effects especially in comparison to modeling with ordinary differential equations. This shows the need for methods for parameter estimation that are suited for stochastic models. I will present a fast approach for that.

*** Christian Seitz (ORB) **

talking about his project involving a reconnaissance drone:

"ArchEye Automatic - Model-based optimization of trajectories of an octocopter for an automatic full documentation of monuments in art history and archaeology"

Archaeology and High-Tec seems sometimes to be a paradoxon.

In the last years there are more and more applications upcoming in this

field. For example 3D-Scanners are more often used to document complex

situations on an excavation. Therefore methods using complex algorithms

are necessary and a need to analyse such a huge amount of data is

obvious. Some examples of Scientific Computing in Archaeology will be

shown in this talk, as there are 3D-scanning, GIS, UAVs and

Visualization. Also I'd like to present my just started PhD-Thesis.

We hope many of you can make it to room 432 at 1700 hrs so we don't have to eat all the pizza alone.

Looking forward to seeing you there! Katharina, Manuel, Dominic and Jan
