CSE 291 Project Guidelines


Following is the schedule for the projects. You are encouraged to discuss your project throughout the quarter with the instructor and TA during their office hours.

(1) On or before Sunday, May 10, at 11:59 PM, you must submit a project proposal in pdf format. This should explain explicitly and clearly what you will do. In particular, the proposal should include:

The proposal should be written in well-organized continuous English, as opposed to just an outline. Most of its text should be reusable in your final report.

(2) On or before Sunday, May 17, at 11:59 PM, you must submit a revised project proposal in pdf format. Since you will have to use LaTeX eventually, you should start now with the revised proposal. In the first phase of the project, some important tasks include:

These are tasks that can and should be performed mostly in parallel, not sequentially.

(3) On or before Sunday, May 31, at 11:59 PM, you must submit a complete, polished draft of your project report in pdf format. The report should resemble as closely as possible a good submission for a conference. You must follow the CVPR formatting instructions. You may find Charles Elkan's notes on machine learning projects and reports helpful.

(4) On or before Monday, June 8, at 11:59 PM, you must submit the final version of your project report in pdf format. You must follow the CVPR formatting instructions. Project reports will be evaluated using these grading criteria.
