Image Compression, Packet Video and Video Processing
Fall Semester, 2009
Student Projects Report and Presentation Format
In order to provide some guidance and uniformity to the class presentation and project reports, I am suggesting the following outline for both the presentation and reports:
Reports will follow classic technical paper guidelines. They will contain:
Abstract - Brief summary of the findings of the paper
Problem Statement - Explanation as to why you are doing this paper. Identification of the area of compression or standards that this problem is addressing.
Objective - Brief description of what you hope to reader will walk away with (trade study that outlines cost models of internet compression, examples of analysis of data with the goal of creating a compressed video product, etc.)
Approach - Outline of the procedure that you will use to bring the problem in focus and identify solution
Analysis - Relevant trade study, or explanation of contents of paper, in-depth experiment, etc.
Conclusion - Results that support your Objective
References - List of supporting documents, URL's, (include pdf files if available)
Supporting Software - If available or generated to support the paper, provide soft copy of all software, or URL references for location where you obtained software.
Report should be in Microsoft Word format, or HTML web page. Report should be between 5 and 10 pages. The 5 pages is a minimum, the 10 pages is a guide. You are creating a document that other students and researchers will want to download and view. Be considerate.
Presentation will also follow the same format as the report (they do not need to have an abstract). Time your presentation to be 15 minutes long. I may resort to a hook if it goes longer. Based on the outline, you should have a minimum of 6 viewgraphs, but can be longer if needed. (I will cut you off at 15 minutes, but you can provide backup charts as needed for the web page).
E-mail your slides (in powerpoint format) to me by 12:00pm of the last class. You can also bring your slides, report and supporting materials on some type of computer media (CD-ROM is preferred). You can also bring your presentation on a laptop and use the computer projector in the classroom. All submittals must be turned in by the last class, since grades must be reported within three days of the last class. There will be no extensions for the project, and it is 30% of your grade.
