Below is a set of topics and a preliminary timetable. Please feel free to suggest your own topic (e.g. one talk on computer graphics would be nice). All the talks will take place in seminar room T4 in the Computer Science Building and they should last half an hour (30 minutes for the presentation and 15 minutes for the discussion).
We have suggested some reference material to go with almost every topic. The reference material may be quite divergent and of varying quality. Find and present the essential points of the material and present them in an understandable way.
You can also use additional material, if necessary. For example taking the the human perception viewpoint (e.g. the book by Ware) into account could give a be a good addition to many of the talks.
Some topics, especially those market with superscripts, may have some overlap. Please discuss with others giving talks on similar topics before the presentation in order to make the talks complementary and to avoid excessive repetition (although some repetition is naturally inevitable and desirable).
Remember to hand out copies of your transparencies to others in the beginning of the presentation. Please also cook up three exercises on the topic of your talk and give them to us at the before the talk. We will then give one of them for the others to solve next week.
