Assignment 1 - Presentation and Participation - 10% (Sessions 5-12) Individual Assignment
For this component you will be required to do a 5-10 minute presentation on a recent academic paper on a topic related to Software Engineering or Software Engineering Methodologies. Some possible topic areas include but are not limited to:
• Software Engineering for Data Warehouse systems
• Risk Analysis in Software Engineering
• Project Management methodologies
• Advances in Prototyping for software engineering
• Cleanroom methodology
• Test Driven methodologies
• Advanced human Interfaces
• Artificial Neural Networks
• Cloud Computing
• Agent Oriented Software Engineering
The paper you select must be directly relevant to one of the above topics or another topic and be related to Software Engineering. The paper must be approved by your lecturer and be related to what we are studying this semester in Software Engineering. The paper can be from any academic conference or other relevant Journal or online sources such as Google Scholar, Academic department repositories, or a significant commercial company involved in research such as IBM etc. All students must select a different paper. Thus, the paper must be approved by your lecturer before proceeding. In case two students are wanting to present on the same paper, the first who emails the lecturer with their choice will be allocated that paper. Please note that popular magazine or web-site articles are not academic papers.
A grade of 10% of the Units mark will be awarded for your presentation and your participation in other student presentations. You are to prepare a set of powerpoint slides for your presentation. If you do not participate in at least 70% of other student’s presentations you will forfeit a significant proportion of the marks for this component.
Note: if class numbers are large the presentations may be organized into groups, but students will still all need to select their own individual paper for assignment 2. In the case where presentations are arranged in groups each group can decide which students paper will be used for the presentation.
The presentations will occur in sessions 5-12 on the academic calendar for the semester and the order of presentations will be by arrangement, but these will be evenly spread over those sessions.
What to Submit.
There is no submission for this component, you are allocated marks based on your presentation and participation
