Geometric Methods in Shape and Pattern Recognition, 2005/2006 term 3


Instructor

Prof. dr. Helmut Alt
Room A230 , Centrumgebouw Noord
phone: 253 7588
E-mail: helmut<at>cs.uu.nl
office hour: Tue 17.15-19.00

Format

The first half of the seminar will consist of lectures given by the instructor and weekly exercises. In the second half every student will study a topic or research paper and give a presentation (2 x 45 minutes) in class.

Homework
Exercises will be given out (on this webpage, see below) weekly in the first half of the seminar. They will appear Thursdays and will be discussed in the first hour of the second Monday after their publication. Each student marks on a sheet that is distributed which of the exercises he solved and is ready to present. Then randomly students will be selected among the ones who marked an exercise for presenting it at the board. The grade for the exercises will depend on the number of exercises marked and the quality of the presentations.

Elaboration of the notes from class
For the first half of the seminar the students will in turn work out in detail their notes from the lectures in LATEX (preferrably) or WORD  and send them to the instructor no later than two days after the lecture. For that week they are exempt from the homework. The compositions will be graded by the instructor and become part of the homework grade.

Written exam

Presentations
Each student has to study a research article, present its contents in a 90-minute lecture, and distribute a 4-page summary to the other participants. His performance will be graded by the instructor.

Presence
Presence is mandatory. In case of circumstances beyond your control some extra work must be done. Note: vacation is not a 'circumstance beyond your control'.
 

Grading

The final mark is an average of  the marks of the homework , the presentations, and the written exam, which all count 1/3 .


Re-examination
Re-examination is possible only after sufficient effort has been shown (presence, presentations, home work), and consists of a written exam. Contact Remco Veltkamp for doing a second change examination.

Planning

Presence at all meetings is mandatory for everyone.
