LIST OF SEMINARS FOR THE CURRENT ACADEMIC YEAR
There is available home page and
seminars for the Academic Year 2009-2010.
The course is taught in the second semester.
For those students who attended at least 75% of the lectures, the
examination is based on a project.
Awareness of methodologies, technologies, and software tools
adopted in the project is - of course - expected.
For discussing a possible topics for the projects, please contact
professor Nanni in
office hours, or arrange an appointment by
telephone (in office hour, please) or by e-mail.
Requirements and Suggestions
Regardless the topic, the discussion of the project requires:
Additional presentations (powerpoint, or similar) are NOT required.
- a report (in english), to be sent in advance by email in pdf format
- a live demonstration of the project (scheduled discussion - see above)
As an example (this meas that, yes, a different structure is OK), a
typical report, depending on the considered project, might include:
The adoption of design formalism is required, notably in the "what"
section: UML diagrams and/or workflows and/or Dimensional Fact Model.
- a short description of the background and context
- statements about the considered problem, scope, goals
- involved technologies and tools
- architecture of the developed project (encompassing software tools,
data and/or control flows, developed modules or data collections)
- analysis / design
- a selection of snapshots from the developed matherial
- achieved goals / resulting consideration
- do not ask "how many pages?"
- pursue conceptual completeness (e.g.: statements vs. achieved goals)
- do not write (or paste) too much: distill the essential contents
- do not write (or paste) too much: you are requested to know
everything is written in your project
- enjoy your project
The project can be discussed by arranging an appointment with
Prof. Nanni (email, or a telephone call or a visit in office hours) or
(according the topic) with Prof. Massimo Mecella.
