28/10/2020  Course HT2020 is fully booked

Currently, the course (lab part) for autumn 2020 is full.
If you are not yet registered but interested to attend, you can enter the waiting queue by sending an email to me. This means that you will start attending the lectures and, after the first week, you may be allowed to sign up for the labs (and the course) if a spot becomes available (as someone else who had registered decides not to take the labs).
Unregistered students are welcome to attend the lectures, but the lessons and lab sessions are reserved for the registered participants, for whom attendance is mandatory.
Students who registered earlier but no longer want to take the course please deregister so that someone else can take your place.

28/10/2020  Course web page being set up for HT2/2020

The course web page is being set up for HT2/2020.
Important for HT2020: Due to the Covid-19 situation, the course will this year be given on distance, also the labs, for which we will use the specially-equipped computers in Olympen by remote login. Olympen (or more specifically, its computers) is reserved for our course during scheduled lab hours. Labs are supervised via zoom. Lab attendance during scheduled lab hours is mandatory, as every year. Virtual lab attendance via zoom (login via LiU-ID) is highly recommended as there are strict limitations of the number of persons admitted in the physical lab room.
Note also that we do not use Lisam for TDDD56 HT2020. All course information will be given here on the course web page. Zoom links and protected course material are provided for registered participants on the password-protected part of this web page.
