Dear students, Dear colleagues,

the summer semester has just started. Let me remind you a few things that are related to this important event.

Seminar Selected Problems in Mathematical Modelling (Vybrané problémy matematického modelování) which is also know as **thesis seminar** will take place irregularly on Mondays in the lecture room K12, see the attached schedule.

**Note that you are required to give a presentation of your work at the seminar. The presentation is a necessary condition for getting the credits for the subject Diploma theis I/II/III.** Please enroll for the seminar as soon as possible. Further, please check that you can give your presentation according to the schedule. If this is not possible, please contact us immediately, and we will try to find the date that is suitable for you.

Let us recall that the first year students are asked to give a 15 minutes presentation regarding the topic of the thesis (description of the topic, description of the main issues and methods that will be probably used for the solution of the given problem). Students in the second/third year are asked to give a 30 minutes presentation on the results/partial results obtained during the solution of the diploma thesis.

**Official deadline for the selection of your diploma thesis topics is 15th February** **2019**. If you already know the topic of your thesis and your supervisor, please check that the thesis has been officially assigned to you in the Study Information System (SIS). If you do not see the topic in SIS, please ask you supervisor to fix it.

It can happen that you are still not sure about the topic of your thesis. If this is the case, you might need our advice. If this is the case, please do not hesitate and contact us!

**If you want to submit your thesis (in summer) this year, please note that the official deadline for the submission of your thesis is 10th May 2019. **There is no chance to extend the deadline!

You might check the course list for **interesting lectures**. My secret tip for an interesting lecture is the new lecture Non-equilibrium thermodynamics of electrochemistry.
