CSE 40437/60437 / Final Project Presentations

Final Project Presentations

In the week of April 28 of class, you will give a final presentation on your project. In the presentation, you should be able to demonstrate all the accomplishments of your project with a focus on the ones you have achieved after the mid-term presentation.

Each talk will occupy 7 minutes, followed by 2 minutes for questions, comments, and transition. Given the time limit, you must stick carefully to your message, and practice your talk multiple times with your group members. Each team member should speak for a portion of the presentation time. Since it is the final presentation, please make it comprehensive and discuss all essential parts of your projects with an emphasize on the results you obtained in the second of half of the semester.

Your talk should be accompanied by 5-8 carefully prepared slides. You may use any tool that you like to create slides, but you must email a draft of your slides to me in PDF or PPTX format by Noon April 24 (Friday) so that I can take a look and give you some feedback if needed. After that, please email me the final version of your slides by Noon on the day of your presentation so I can upload them to the computer in the classroom. (There won't be time for mucking around with laptops, cables, etc.) However, if you plan to do a demo on your own laptop, please let me know ahead of time, we can arrange for it.

A typical structure of the talk would include: A brief review of the project background, progresses made after mid-term report, Final evaluation results and demo (if there is one), Discussions, Future work.

Finally, be considerate of your classmates -- be present at all of the class sessions, ask thoughtful questions about these exciting projects and provide feedback/comments.


Your grade will be based on the following rubric:
  • Does the presentation adequately cover all aspects of the project: the objective or problem to be solved, the structure and technologies used, one or more interesting challenges, comprehensive evaluation, and meaningful conclusions?
  • Has substantial progress on the project been made after mid-term presentation/report, including new results that have not been discussed in mid-term presentation/report?
  • Are the slides prepared with care, including at least one excellent diagram that shows the structure of the system and how the components interact?
  • Is the oral presentation clear and logical, with each group member participating, and completing the presentation within the time limit?
  • Did the project members attend everyone else's talks, ask appropriate questions and give helpful feedback?
  • Schedule
