DCS 891A Research Seminar I

Course Description: This seminar introduces the student to what research in computing and information technology is about. Faculty and/or invited researchers will make presentations of either their own research or someone else's research. Students will be given papers to read in advance of the presentation, and are expected to participate in discussions about the essence and context of the research area both in online discussion forums and in the weekend onsite meetings.

This seminar also introduces the student to the literature search process. Students will be required to find at least one full text article, one hard copy article (for which full text is not available), one Internet source paper, and one dissertation abstract which relates to any of the research areas presented in the seminar. They will read these and publish on the Internet a short piece discussing the relevance of the work.
