- Each assignment is due in 10 days from the day it is posted (not counting the day on which it was posted). For example, an assignment that is posted on Sept 24th is due on Oct 4t @ 11:59pm.
- Each student is supposed to email all his/her work in a single pdf to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the assignment involves programming, then accompanying code should be attached as well.
Type of the project: The choice of the project topics is flexible. Application of existing techniques to a new problem (e.g., from your own research), software implementation and benchmarking of an existing algorithm and extension of an existing algorithm are all good projects.
Topic of the project: If you have a topic in mind, feel free to discuss with the instructor as soon as possible. Alternatively, here are some potential project topics.
Reporting: Two short presentations (during the semester) for progress report and a final report are required. The progress report will be a single slide in a GOTChA-chart style (see the link for GOTChA charts).
- Progress report and short presentation (1) -- See the schedule for the presentation day. The pdf version of the single slide is to be turned in by 9am on the day of presentations by email. The chart should clearly state the plans until the second presentation day.
- Progress report and short presentation (2) -- See the schedule for the presentation day. The pdf version of the single slide is to be turned in by 9am on the day of presentations by email. The chart should be modified to reflect on the accomplishments so far and plans for the rest of the semester.
- Final report -- Due 11:59pm on the official day of the final exam for the course.
