2019-05-02: The results of the exam 2019-03-19 are now available in Ladok. We apologize for the long delay in marking the exams, which is due to the very heavy work load on our teachers (we had a total of around 1000 exams to mark in March). Although the delay was still within the time limits allowed by LTH (see "Studiehandboken - Gemensamma föreskrifter", section 6.1), it is not the delays we strive for.
The exams will be available for viewing on Thursday, May 9, at 12.15 in room E:2116.
2019-01-16: The course will start on January 22, 2019 – you can find the schedule in TimeEdit. Attendance will not be required for the first lecture, but you will have to register for the course in Ladok, and by following this link.
The course website will be on Moodle – those who have registered (see above) will get an email with instructions on how to enroll.
The course is planned for students who are in Lund during the weeks, if you're planning on being away for a couple of days, the rules are here (in Swedish).
2017-12-09: For purely technical reasons, this course has been given a new course code, EDAF75 (it used to be EDA216), but the formal course description (see right) has not changed.
2016-12-05: According to the formal course description (see link to the right), the course is given in Swedish, and the lectures will indeed be in Swedish, but the material on this web site, and on the lecture slides, will be in English. You can send questions in either Swedish or English.
