Nov. 23, 2009:     We will use the following procedure to schedule the final presentations of the students:
Each student should discuss with his/her supervisor at which of the time slots given below student and supervisor are available for the presentation. The student then sends to the instructor (crossposted to the supervisor) an email indicating at least 3 possible time slots and their ranking. The instructor will then schedule the presentations taking the ranking into account and resolving conflicts based on FIFO.
Available time slots (start times):
Dec. 3: 10:00, 13:00, 14:00
Dec. 4: 12:00, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00, 16:00
Dec. 7: 11:00, 12:00
Dec. 8: 11:00, 12:00, 13:00, 14:00
Aug. 31, 2009:     There will be a meeting at the beginning of the semester for all 503 students on Wednesday, Sep. 9, at 10:00 in ICT 616. While it is not mandatory to attend the meeting, it is definitely recommended!
Jun. 19, 2009:     Course web site started, only registration information available at this moment.

Description of the course

A research project conducted under the guidance of a faculty member. A report must be presented on completion of the course.

Consent of the Department.

How to register

Since the prerequisite of this course is consent of the Department, people interested in taking the course cannot directly register in PeopleSoft. To deal with this, we would like to ask students to follow the following procedure:

  1. Find a supervisor for your research project and discuss with him or her the research project you want to do over the fall.
  2. Send the instructor an email, crossposted to your supervisor, in which you state that you want to do 503, who you are (i.e. we need to be able to identify you for PeopleSoft), who your supervisor is and what project you agreed on (title plus one or two sentences describing what you want to look into).
  3. We will check that you fulfill all the requirements and if yes indicate to PeopleSoft that you are allowed to register. We will then send you an email asking you to register via PeopleSoft (or tell you if there is a problem).
  4. After registering make sure that PeopleSoft has your current email address, so that we can inform you about future steps. Information about these future steps will also appear on this page under News
