CSE 5097 Sec. 003: Algorithms and Applications Seminar

Fall 2009



Intructor: Yufeng Wu

Time and Location: Wednesdays 4:00-5:00 pm. ITEB 201. We expect to meet for one hour weekly.

Description: The seminar is devoted to the presentation and discussion of current research in algorithms and their applications in areas such as bioinformatics, systems, etc. Students will read and present research papers selected based on their own research interests and instructors' suggestions.  This is a great opportunity to learn about recent developments and hone your presentation skills!

Requirements: Students are required to attend weekly seminar meetings. Each student will be responsible for presenting one research paper. The students can either pick a paper from the following suggested paper or choose a paper on algorithms and applications. In the latter case, the students should consult the instructors for their choice of paper. The presentation can be either in power point or white board based. If power points are to be used, we recommend the slides to be prepared several days in advanced and sent to the instructors so that feedbacks can be given.
