Who’s in it?

A maximum of seven elected members of the computational linguistics students sit on the Student Council a.k.a. Fachschaftsrat (the word Fachschaft refers to all the people studying Computational Linguistics at the University of Heidelberg. The Major is irrelevant).
They are elected to this honorary office for a legislative period of one year.

Current members are:

 

What’s it all about??

The Student Council deals with all matters concerning the subject and the institute: organisation of the summer and Christmas celebrations and other events such as film evenings or the freshers introduction, contact point for students with problems and mediator between the students and the institute management.

When is there a meeting?

As a rule, the date changes every semester (please note announcements by e-mail and information on the Fachschaftsrat page). The meetings take place weekly during the lecture period. The place is either the sofa corner in the pool, in good weather in the Botanik or in the Fachschaft room in INF 327, 2. OG. Since especially the latter is well hidden, the meeting point for each session is always in advance in the ZIP pool in INF325.

Who should I contact?

Almost always, the sessions are Fachschaftvollversammlungen (general assemblies), i.e. they are open to all members of the Fachschaft. So if you have a topic you want to discuss, just come to the meeting!
