Welcome to the Seminar on "Emerging Topics in IT-Security" in the summer term of 2022.
Here you will be able to find all the details concerning the seminar.


Subject matter

IT-Security research is concerned with protecting communication from errors, eavesdroppers, and manipulation. This seminar should give students insight into new developments and advanced research areas that go beyond the very basic concepts of IT-security and cryptography. (Having a basic understanding of those will therefore be useful in following the seminar.)

Topics include (but are not limited to):


The list of topics is available now: Seminar Topics The literature indicated there is not cited scientifically. It is intended only as inspiration - you should research further literature.

Please submit four preferences here. The seminar password is required. (It will be announced in the kick-off.) Please only register once.



Seminar places are exclusively awarded centrally via Uni2Work. TUM students please use the corresponding TUM process. Please, create a guest Uni2Work Account. Otherwise, you will not be able to submit your work items.

Basic knowledge of IT-security or cryptography is not formally required, but strongly recommended. Please indicate in your application whether you have any previous knowledge in this area so we know our audience.

The seminar will be held in English.


The seminar will imitate a scientific conference. That means:

Master students will be assigned a topic to work on alone, Bachelor students will work on a topic in pairs.

*Seminar spots are in great demand. Therefore, anyone who does not participate in the kick-off event (without giving notice) will lose their seminar spot, which will be re-assigned to another student.

Formal Criteria

The final grade of the seminar is determined by the quality of the scientific paper, presentation, and the contributed reviews. Participation in the final conference is mandatory throughout the whole event, which will take place in person.

The grade will also be impacted by conformance to the templates, conformance to the required page limit and compliance with the presentation rules.

The seminar will be held in English, including end of term presentations, but we explicity encourage also students with shaky English skills to apply - this is an opportunity to learn and we will not hold your language mistakes against you in grading.

Paper criteria:

The paper must meet the following criteria:

Non-conformance to one of the criteria will impact the final grade.

Presentation criteria:

The presentation must meet the following criteria:

Also, please use the MNM-Team Slide Template.

Non-conformance to one of the criteria will impact the final grade.

Rules for Online Teaching

Currently, most teaching happens online. As teachers, we ask you to be forgiving if things should not work perfectly right away, and we hope for your constructive participation. In live meetings, we ask you to responsibly deal with audio (off by default) and bandwidth (video as needed). We would also like to point out that..

If you violate either of these rules, please expect to be expelled from the respective course. We reserve the right for further action.


Questions, criticism and suggestions are always welcome. Please use the seminar-specific e-mail address seminar@nm.ifi.lmu.de.
