Homework Sets (20%): Four homework sets, that will be returned and graded; these will range from multiple choice questions to problem solving.
Course Project (30%): There are two options:
Final Exam (50%): Oral, covering all taught material, including student presentations.
Instructions for each practical project are found in each project's description.
Report: For the evaluation, you must write a report of maximum 2 pages, A4, 10pt, single spaced. Reports are due on Fridays of the week after each presentation (i.e., you have 9 days after the presentation to submit your report). The penalty for late submission is -0.25 (out of 6) per day.
Presentation: In addition, you must present your work in class, in a maximum 25 minute presentation, which should include a demonstration of your work. Questions will follow for 10-15 minutes.
You will be provided with a set of research papers covering a specific topic. In addition, it is your responsibility to search more papers that are related to the assigned topic. After finding and reading literature, you will write a survey paper about the assigned topic. In a survey paper, it is crucial to discuss advantages, shortcomings, and differences of the related work and to propose directions for improvement. More ample guidelines will be provided on the projects page.
Paper: Your survey paper should be maximum 5 pages, A4, 10pt, single-spaced. Papers are due on Fridays of the week after each presentation (i.e., you have 9 days after the presentation to submit your paper). The penalty for late submission is -0.25 (out of 6) per day.
Presentation: Each student will be allotted maximum 25 minutes for the presentation and 10-15 minutes for the questions.
For both types of projects, the slides and the presentation must be in English.
Homeworks are handed out on Wednesdays and due two weeks later by 12:00 midnight of the due date. The penalty for late submission is -0.25 (out of 6) per day. No late homework submissions will be accepted after the solutions have been posted on the class web site.

Homework exercises will relate to the material presented in the lectures and to the recommended reading. Homework solutions will be discussed in exercise sessions and will be regularly posted on the class website and will be there for you to independently check your homework against.
In general, write your homework as though you're trying to convince someone that you know what you're talking about. Your work is much easier to grade when you have made your work and reasoning clear, and any difficulties you have in completing the assignment can be better explained by the grader. More importantly, however, completely worked and corrected homework exercises make excellent study guides for the final exam. Also, if you develop good habits while working on the homework, you will generally perform better on the tests.
