Additional radiation protection course
A radiation protection course will take place on Monday, 8 May 2023, 13:30-14:00 (INF 227, HS2).

SS 2023: Introduction to the Advanced Lab course and radiation protection course
An introduction to the FP (including the mandatory radiation protection course) will be given on April 17, 2022, 13:30 in INF 308, HS 1. The slides for the FP introduction of are available here.

Activation of experiment dates during the lecture period (SS 2023) (29 March 2023)
Like in the previous winter semester, this summer semester the dates for FP experiments in the lecture period will no longer be released centrally on a specific date. Instead, the tutors of the respective experiments will release dates for booking with immediate effect. These dates can then be booked directly. By 5.4.2023 at the latest, all appointments that can be offered in the lecture period of SS 2023 are to be released by the tutors. This new type of appointment activation should help to prevent appointments from being booked on which no tutor is available in the end.

Booking of slots for FP seminar presentations in SS 2023 (29 March 2023)
FP seminar presentations in the SS 2023 can now be booked via the personal FP status page. As always, in special cases, e.g. presentations without partners, presentation dates can also be booked by e-mail to the FP management.

Division FP1/FP2 (3 March 2023)
There are still (also in SS 2023) no restrictions on the division of FP experiments between FP1 and FP2. Thus, for example, the combination of 2 FP1 + 6 FP2 is currently fine.

Starting time FP seminars: 13:00 --> 13:15
FP seminars that previously started at 13:00 will start at 13:15 starting next week, 10/31/2022. This affects the seminars that are held on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The seminar that takes place on Thursdays will continue to start at 14:00.

FP experiments as last task in the bachelor programme
Please send an email to the FP adminstration if the current lack of open FP2 slots might lead to the FP being your last achievement in the bachelor programme (after completion of the bachelor thesis) with the possible consequence of a longer duration of study. With this information we would like to create a priority list for the allocation of FP2 experiments.

Please read the FP guide for detailed information about the Advanced Lab Course.
