**Deadlines**

**Summary/Abstract (problem definition, papers to read):
October 14 (Friday) by 5pm**

Please show me the papers (email them or bring them over to me) before you finally decide which ones to read. Plan ahead accordingly.

**Part I: October 31 (Monday) by 5pm**

Will schedule time for Part I talks

**Part II: December 7 (Wednesday) by 5pm**

Part II talks on December 5 & 7

**Evaluation:** 30% for each
part

Part I - report + talk + answering questions

Part II - complete report (including part I updated based on experiments/questions in class) +results + code + talk + answering questions

** Report size LESS than 10 pages, single space, single column. Margins
as small as you like!**

**Part I should consist of**

**- Problem definition: **a short clear mathematical statement of problem
and assumptions and also an intuitive explanation of what you want to do

**- Literature survey: **either stressing on different approaches for one
application or different applications for a few approaches or a combination of
both.

- **Algorithms** (2-3 algorithms) that you plan to implement

**Part II should consist of**

**- Updated algorithms **(that you implemented): enough details so
if someone wants, they can re-implement the method

- **Responses to Questions **asked in Part I talk

- **Results of experiments, discussion, conclusions: **images/plots, why
you got what you got, what can you infer from it, you may want to change some of
what you said in Part I based on what you learnt when you implemented the
algorithms)

- **Possible Future Work **

- **Soft copy of your code**

- **20 minute talk + 5-10 minutes of questions**
