Suggested supplementary readings
To further your understanding of the concepts presented in each lesson, a list of suggested articles is provided. Each of those is accompanied by a series of questions to help you identify the most important aspects discussed.
Note: (i) some of the linked material may only be available from within the ULiege network. Connect to ULiege’s VPN for remote access (ii) the research papers need to be studied for the assignment date.
The statement of the assignment is available here. The deadline to submit the assignment is TBA at 23:59. Check the statement for the submission details.
Part of the mark for the project will come from the evaluation of the report (same for all members of one group), and the rest of the mark will come from an oral discussion with the teaching assistants on 14/12/22 (different for each member). The schedule can be found TBA.
The exercises evaluation, organised on 21/12/22 at 14:00 (until 16:00) in R21, is mandatory for all HELMO students and will cover the content of exercises sessions 1 (questions 2 to 4) and 2 (questions 1 to 3).
The exam will be organised in sessions. Each session will be around 2h long and by groups of 4 to 6 students.
Each session will be organized in the following way.
- One of the assessors – Pr. Damien Ernst or an assistant – will give each student a question to answer.
- The student will then have some time to write down an answer to the question.
- Once the student is finished answering or when the assessor considers he/she has had enough time to answer, the student and the assessor will have a discussion over the question and topics related to this question.
- This process will be repeated for one or two more questions.
Questions will cover the theoretical courses and exercises. Questions might be asked about the project (for ULiège and Erasmus students).
The exam schedule is provided TBA. Please be present (be it physically or virtually) at least 10 minutes before the start of your session.
