What is a TechTalk?
Companies and institutions from the IT environment have the opportunity to present themselves with a TechTalk. In the course of a TechTalk a company-specific, technical question or problem is to be discussed. This can be a special approach to the successful implementation of a specific task or a problem that has not yet been solved.
Of course, a company presentation can also be part of the TechTalk, but in the centre of the TechTalk the technical aspects should be presented in an appropriate level of detail.
Who comes to a TechTalk?
TechTalks are primarily aimed at students and employees* of the KIT Faculty of Computer Science. This includes about 3500 students of computer science, information economy/business informatics, and computer science teaching profession as well as 330 professors and research assistants.
In principle, TechTalks are open to all KIT members and, depending on the topic, are also applied for across faculties.
What do the participants expect?
Surveys on the expectations of TechTalks have shown that the participants want to deal with a technical problem in greater depth and either want to link existing theoretical knowledge with a practical problem or to acquire new knowledge.
Where do TechTalks take place?
TechTalks take place in the largest lecture hall in the main building 50.34. The auditorium has 120 seats and is equipped with the latest presentation technology. If required, it is possible to transmit both sound and the beamer image to a neighbouring auditorium with an additional 80 seats.
How does the organisation of a TechTalk work?
TechTalks can take place about 2 times per semester. Dates are set in consultation with the companies depending on the availability of the lecture hall.
The KIT Faculty of Computer Science is the organizer of a TechTalk. The event will be advertised on the faculty website, on posters in all computer science buildings, by circulars and of course in social networks.
