CM5241 Project

1. Project topic
Please propose a topic for your literature review project by 8 Sep 2016.
The proposed topic should be relevant to the course.
Please note below some examples of relevant topics.
You only need to send me the project title (not the papers).
You should do literature search using suitable keywords so that there will be around 20 - 100
relevant papers on your chosen topic.
Each person may read 5 to 10 papers, and present/explain the key results to other group
members in order to prepare the joint PPT file and report.
Your chosen topic may be similar but should not be the same as any of these topics.
You may follow the format, including the reference style.
2. Presentation:
Presentation schedule will be announced after the topics are finalized.
Each person will be given 4 minutes (e.g. total of 20 min for 4 people including 4 min for Q&A, etc)
Presentation should include:
o Introduction, background, challenges, reasons for choice of technique
o Previous studies/alternative techniques/problems encountered
o Principle of method and key experimental details
o Results and discussion
o Conclusion and future work
Slides should be uploaded into IVLE folder at least one day before presentation (A penalty of 10
marks will be applied if files are not uploaded in time).
The file name of the PPT file should be in the following format: CM5241-Group x
Marks will be deducted if time of presentation exceeds 4 min (5 marks for every minute)
Each team will be given marks for participation based on their performance in Q&A sessions
3. Written report
Each group will submit a joint report in the format of a review article (see examples below).
The review article should describe the state-of-art, advantages and disadvantages of the
techniques, main challenges, future perspectives, etc.
Each group member should prepare ~5 pages (plus figures and references) based on their
presentation topics.
Written report should be uploaded onto IVLE latest by 6 Oct (Thur), 11:59 pm.
Format: Font 12 (Arial), 1.5 line spacing, with 0.75 inch margins on all size; all references should be
referred to in the correct order throughout the whole report, and compiled and listed according to
ACS referencing format as an appendix of the whole report (not included in page limit).
Sources of figures should be clearly indicated and acknowledged.
Please enter your name on the relevant pages your prepared.
The file name of the report should be in the following format: CM5241-Group x
