This lecture is aiming at providing basic skills in reading, understanding, and evaluating scientific articles, and in presenting scientific results in presentations and publications. It includes topics like citations and bibliographic data in scientific publications, selection of topics, examples, and results for an oral presentation, preparation of slides and other materials for oral presentations as well as selecting, structuring, and writing scientific articles. The lecture will include practical training in reading and reviewing scientific articles, in preparing and giving presentations, and in setting up and writing short scientific articles. The topics will be selected from Computational Logic. Hence, some familiarity with propositional and first-order logic is assumed.
