This research seminar is aimed at training and supporting Ph.D. students who work experimentally in the field of value based system design and ethical computing. Ph.D. students present their completed or ongoing research work. They receive feedback on how to improve research questions and experimental set-up if the work is not yet completed. They equally receive training on some substance matter subjects that vary from one semester to the other.

Learning outcomes

The learning outcomes of this seminar are

  • an understanding of "experimental thinking" in research endeavours
  • an understanding of "hypotheses formation" for Ph.D. projects
  • insight into varying subject matters related to human-computer interaction and/or ethical computing
Attendance requirements

Ph.D. students are required to attend all sessions of this seminar.

Teaching/learning method(s)

Every week one participant in the seminar will give a presentation on his or her research work for joint discussion and scrutiny.


The quality of the material presented, attendance and participation in the discussion are the basis for grading in this course.
