I will distribute a list of papers from major conferences and journals. Each project group (consisting of one or two students) will give a 30 minute presentation on one of the papers they select.  




A project will come from a list that I will distribute or one that the student proposes to me. Every student is required to submit a short project proposal (2 pages). Structure the final project report as a research paper: title, abstract, introduction and motivation, related works, approach description, experimental methodology and results, conclusions, and references. The paper should be single space, double column, 10 fonts, and 12 pages.  Three copies of the project report will be submitted. I will review one copy.  Students will review the other two copies.
