CPSC 689-605: Term Project Specification

Proposal target date: Thursday, October 11, 2001 (optional)

Project written report due Friday, December 7, 2001

Project presentations, in class Tuesday, December 4, 2001.

As term project in this class you are to identify a problem related to the course and then design and prototype a solution. You have wide lattitude in selecting the problem to be solved--it should be related to the course's content, of course. The project may be a group project or an individual project. Note that the problem to be solved by a larger group should be correspondingly larger than that proposed by an individual. All team members will receive the same grade on the assignment.


A written proposal can be turned in for feedback. The proposal should describe:

Project report

The project report (written) is to be an overall presentation of the problem, the design, the prototype, the respective evaluations, and a discussion of lessons learned. Think of this as the "archival" record of your project. A report organization like that of a research paper is most likely to be the most reasonable form for this report.

Project presentations

Oral project presentations/demonstrations will be scheduled in-class. Signups for time slots will be available later in the semester.
