Advanced research and scholarship. Theses and dissertations, free to find, free to use.
OATD.org aims to be the best possible resource for finding open access graduate theses and dissertations published around the world. Metadata (information about the theses) comes from over 1100 colleges, universities, and research institutions. OATD currently indexes 5,153,410 theses and dissertations.
For students working on their MASTERS theses in Linz:
even though you work in Linz, you need to fill in the Assignment of master thesis and submit it in Budweis (Study Dept.) with all the signatures – this is needed for the subsequent uploading of your finished thesis. You can do this anytime during your study, but the simplest and best will be, if you submit the assignment as soon as possible; you will not need to think about it when you are finishing.
- To do research with us you need to have a solid math (analysis, algebra, statistics) and programming (python, PyTorch) background and prior experience in machine learning, computer vision or both. If you don’t, please take the relevant courses before approaching us.
- Familiarize yourself with our latest research (last 2 years). You find all abstracts of our recent publications on this page. Read the papers that you find most interesting in detail and write down your comments or think about potential extensions.
- Send an email to Prof. Andreas Geiger that describes your programming experience, your research interests and your project ideas if you have any. Mention the papers from us that you find most interesting and send us your comments on them. Please also attach your CV.
We continuously offer BSc and MSc theses in the context of our current research. As our field advances quickly, we do not maintain a list of thesis projects but create these research projects on demand. If you are interested in doing your BSc or MSc thesis, follow these steps:
- Spatial distribution of biodiversity: species distribution modelling and alternative approaches
- Ecosystem services associated to biodiversity: identifying, classifying and valuing ecosystem services
- Connectivity conservation: linking protected areas, biodiversity corridors
- Spatial-social-ecological integration: anchoring local stakeholders’ knowledge on biodiversity and their willingness to protect biodiversity into connectivity conservation strategies
