- Prepare and submit a polished paper describing your work. Use these Latex style files if you are writing in Latex (which is *the* way to write nice looking papers) or this Word template if you insist on suffering through producing something somewhat less elegant. Your paper should look like a conference paper, including Title, Author Affiliations, Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results and Conclusion (Bibliographical references are optional for this, but do include them if you have any).
- Prepare a polished oral presentation, including slides, that communicates your work. Your presentation should take about 12-15 minutes and allow 2-5 minutes for questions (a rough guide for slide preparation is about 1 slide per minute). Practicing in advance makes for a much better presentation. Send me an email telling me which day (April 7th or 9th) you would like to present your work to the class. First come, first served.
- Email me a thoughtful and honest evaluation of the contributions of your group members. For each, include a score from 1 to 5 indicating your evaluation of their work (1 meaning they were a valuable member of the team that made significant contributions to the project and were good to work with, 5 meaning they contributed little and were difficult to work with). If you would like, you may also include any clarifying comments, etc.
