TipSelecting a seminar group can make it easier to display the selected group in the timetable using the "Display timetable" link (if a timeable is specified for the group).
- Green – login is possible. The word "collision" means a collision with your schedule.
- Blue – you are logged in.
- Deep red – cannot log in. The reason may be failure to meet the conditions for enrollment in the seminar group or for enrollment of the course itself (for more details on evaluation of the prerequisites click here).
- Light red – you could sign in, but you are already logged in elsewhere. Use the "sign here" to sign out of the blue group here.
No system collision detection occurs when the system loads.
The registered courses are displayed in yellow in the timetable, the courses or groups you are displaying in addition are displayed in light blue and the enrolled / registered courses / groups are displayed in white. Seminars displayed in the timetable have a colored triangle in the right corner, which indicates whether you are allowed to join the seminar or not (you can get help by hovering over the triangle). Clicking on the triangle will take you to the list of seminar groups where you can perform the desired action. You can also view seminar groups directly in the timetable in the "Display options" section by checking the "include all the seminar groups of the courses displayed" option.

- 9.What shall I do to succeed in the group hunt? What is the quickest way of enrolling in a group?In some courses, students scramble for vacancies in the seminar groups, which leads to group hunts (usually starting at 17:00). To quickly enroll in seminar groups, please proceed as follows:
WarningIf you want to check your ranking in the time contest, you can use the Course and Seminar Group Registration Position.
- After clicking on “Select a seminar group”, make sure the top of the page lists the right term (e.g. Autumn 2018).
- Click on the name of the course whose seminar group you want to enroll in. This takes you to the page listing all the seminar groups created under the course.
- Provided you perform the aforementioned operation before 17:00, i.e. prior to the start of the period during which it is possible to enroll in the groups, all of these are still marked red.
- At this stage, you are unable to enroll in any group. Nevertheless, each group contains the attempt to enroll reference that you can use any time before the start of and during the enrollment period. Clicking on the reference opens a new window and, provided the operation is performed after 17:00, you get enrolled in the group. However, the enrollment fails if the enrollment period has not started yet. In such a situation, though, you can keep reloading the newly opened page (using the Refresh button of your browser) until you succeed. You can even practice this operation right away or any other time prior to the start. It is also advisable to open several windows listing seminar groups of different courses and, switching between the windows and reloading them, continue trying to enroll in their seminar groups.
- Please remember to get ready for the hunt (prepare the windows) in advance since the workload of the System might increase dramatically at 17:00 preventing you from doing so in time.
Please do not use any programs refreshing the page contents automatically. The Information System will disconnect those users who overload it some other way than by clicking on its references.
- 10.How do I find out the current time in IS VŠFS?To find out what the current IS time is, please click on Current date and time (situated at the bottom of the main IS page). This reference will take you to the page displaying the current central time of the IS database. To update the displayed time, click on the Refresh/Reload button of your browser. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that the page will always display the right time. That is, if it takes the page longer than one second to load, please do not consider the time displayed current. The times other than the one displayed at the top of the page (if present due to the skin you have selected) should not be considered accurate since they may differ from the central time of the IS database, i.e. the one used by the registration application. Provided you wish to synchronize your computer with the Information System, please use the NTP protocol and NTP server of the Faculty of Informatics, which is utilized for setting the IS time.
It is always only the central time of the IS database that you should rely on in course hunts.
- 11.I am not able to enroll in a seminar group. What is the problem?You might not be able to enroll in the seminar group due to one (or more) of the following:
- The period during which it is possible to enroll in seminar groups has not started yet. Although this period is usually the same for all the courses offered by the faculty, sometimes there might be some discrepancies in this respect (see the group-related information). To find out when the period starts, please consult the Term Calendar.
- You have not enrolled in the course yet, i.e. your registration record is red.
- The seminar group you want to enroll in is full, i.e. there are no longer any vacancies in it.
