Presentation Proposal

Due Tuesday March 6th by 10am

Post on CourseWorks in the Presentation Proposals folder.

The proposal should consist of a title and a brief 1-2 paragraph description of the planned content of the talk.

Presentation slots on the course schedule will be assigned asap after proposals are received.  (Special arrangements will be made for CVN students.)

Each presentation should be no more than 10 minutes and should consist of approximately 10 slides. It would be wise to practice the timing of your talk, since you will be cut off if you go on too long.  The target audience is the students in this class: do not assume any specialized knowledge beyond the scope of the initial course lectures and prerequisites, but also do not duplicate any material covered in lectures (except a one-slide “review” is acceptable where warranted).

Plan on using projection from the podium, using either your own laptop or the podium PC (which supports internet download and usb drive).  Presentation slides must be posted on CourseWorks in advance of your talk (and re-posted if revised).   Slides will be copied to the course website, where they will be publicly available.

All documents must be submitted in pdf, word, html or plain ascii text, with all figures embedded or viewable in an ordinary browser without special “plugins”.   It is your responsibility to ensure all submissions are “safe” prior to submission; any submissions that make a virus or malware checker unhappy will not be read or graded.

All files are to be named using this schema: Assignment_Author. For example, the submitted file containing an individual student’s presentation proposal should have a file name like Presentation_Proposal_Jane_Doe.pdf.  10% credit will be subtracted when the document file name does not include the assignment name and the student name.  Presentation_Proposal_jd2001.pdf is not acceptable.  6125_Jane_Doe.pdf is not acceptable.
