Showing a demo or a video of one of the systems in action can be very helpful to show your colleagues the look and feel of an interactive system. If you want do this and plan to use my laptop to present, contact me in advance (at least the day before) so that we can sort whether the demo will indeed run. Please inform me in advance if you will require a VCR during your presentation.
Note that this presentation style is quite different from what was
assigned in Spring 2003 course, but it's similar to Spring 2004.
Slides You should prepare slides to accompany your talk. Last year's course and
the previous one have many good examples
of student presentations. You may use the software platform of your
choice to present these slides, as long as it's also possible to
provide a cross-platform readable version of your talk for the course
web site: for instance, HTML+images, or PDF. PowerPoint is fine (it's
easiest for you to give me the PowerPoint file, and then I generate
the HTML+images from it).
Do not send me large files via email. You should post your course-related materials (slides, assignments, proposals, final project reports) on your personal web site, and send me the URL. I will then upload your work to the course web site, so that it is archivally available. If you don't already have a personal site, see the webpage setup section of the CS Dept FAQ for how to set one up in the CS domain.
You may use my laptop for presentations, it can run either Linux or Windows. If you need to use anything except for PDF or PowerPoint, check with me in advance to make sure that the required software is installed on my machine. Slides are due on the day of class:
Also send me the URL (or citation) of your chosen third paper.
