A doctorate is carried out in close collaboration with a supervisor from the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Bern. Possible research topics are mostly in the areas covered by the research groups of the institute. These include computer graphics, computer vision, communication and distributed systems, software composition, and logic and theory. Interested persons can contact a leader of a research group directly to clarify the possibility of a doctorate and to discuss potential research topics.
It is expected that scientific papers will be independently prepared during a doctoral degree and published in international journals. Research results will also be presented at conferences in lectures and posters. Furthermore, cooperation with international research groups is often one of the activities during a doctorate. The dissertation ends with a written thesis and a final examination in the form of a lecture.
