CSCE 970 (Spring 2003) Project Ideas

From the syllabus:

In this course you will do a substantial project. This project can be: (1) a very extensive literature search and summary on a particular topic, (2) a good implementation and evaluation of a known result in pattern recognition, or (3) a small (but nontrivial) amount of original research related to pattern recognition. You may work on these projects individually or in small groups, though if you work in a group, my expectations will be much higher when I grade your project.

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 (April 28-May 2), and if necessary, during the week prior to dead week (April 21-25). You will submit your written report to me no later than May 2 (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 below, 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.
