Missing presenter name means that the corresponding position is still open. (In such cases, the concrete topic might be relocated to a different date.) Missing topic names means that the course has not yet been planned to this far in such a level of details. In preparing your own survey, please use Petteri's .tex file as a formatting example. (See here for the outcomes of T-79.514 in 2004.) Please also use the slide templates: template.tex and init.tex. Process your slides, if possible, by pdflatex, and return them in a .pdf format. The survey could be returned in .ps, .pdf or both.
Preliminary (tentative! The order might be rescheduled, topics changed, etc) schedule follows. Details can be changed, so be uptodate!
