You will summarize your project results in a written report and an oral presentation. If your project involves an implementation, then you may be asked to also give a brief demonstration. The written report must use a professional writing style similar to that found in an ACM or IEEE journal, including abstract, introduction, summary of related work, your contribution, references, and an appendix (if necessary). The oral presentation will be to the entire class at the end of the semester: during dead week (December 10-14), and if necessary, during the week prior to dead week (December 3-7). You will submit your written report to me no later than December 14 (the last day of dead week). In accordance with UNL dead week policies, you have now been informed in writing of the nature and scope of this project prior to the eighth week of classes.
Suggestions for projects can be found on the course's web pages, but you may propose your own topic as well. You must receive my approval on your topic before proceeding with your work! To be a valid topic, it must go beyond the scope of the course. So your project could be on a topic we did not cover in class at all, or could more deeply explore a topic we covered in class.
