Project ProposalDue: Wednesday 4 October
The project proposal is a printable web page (this means everything you want me to read should appear on a single web page) that describes your project in more detail than was done in the pre-proposal. There is no length requirement, but I will be worried about groups who do not turn in substantial evidence of progress.
It should contain at least the following four sections:
- Description of Problem - What will we (meaning the world at large) know or have know after you have finished the project that we don't today? Motivate your project and explain why it is interesting.
- Related Work - Summary of work related to your problem. This is not a book report; you need to explain clearly how the other work relates to your topic, and make clear arguments about the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches. The related work need not be complete yet, but you should have a good understanding of the most important work related to your problem. It is fine if this section includes statements like, "next, we plan to read [Coppersmith86], [Crepeau87] and [Fortune85]." Your proposal should include a references list that gives full citations for each of your references.
- Research Plan - a clear description of what exactly you will do including:
- A schedule with concrete milestones (one of which should be producing a final report on 6 December)
- A description of the division of labor between group members, including how you plan to manage your team.
