Presentations and Papers
VCSG-709/VCSS-590, Spring 2004
All students, working in groups of three, choose one topic and
present a one hour talk on this topic (if the number of students
is not divisible by 3, then the last registered group will have
2 or 4 students).
Topics and groups should be approved by the instructors.
In addition, each graduate student will write a term paper
on topic related to the presentation.
Specific steps and dates are as follows.
First step, due April 3 (Sat)
You may still have doubts what to do, but you have to complete
the steps below. The topic can be related to one of the lectures,
but also can explore a new area.
Forming group and choosing a topic
All topics will be reviewed in class. The instructors
and other students may suggest modifications. If still
in doubt, talk to one of the instructors
about the details during the next week.
- fix www page of your group presentation
- list group members
- choose the title and write an abstract (10-15 lines)
of your presentation in simple html
- send email (one per group) to spr with the URL of this page
Second step, April 13 (Tue)
All students have fixed groups and subjects of their
presentations. Abstracts will reflect modifications
suggested on 4/6. Each group page must contain at least
three references to sources. Send to spr proposed presentation
day and time (as listed below). Note that only 6 spots are
available at the end of the quarter. We expect at least
some volunteers for an early presentation in April.
Third step, May 11 (Tue)
(only graduate students) Formatted hardcopy of the paper due.
It has to be posted on the web as well.
Attendance of all students is required during the presentations.
Students will fill out short forms to evaluate
presentations of the other groups. These evaluations will
contribute to the presentation part of the grade.
