## ProjectsGoals & deliverables Topics & teams Logistics Timeline Types of projects Project proposals (in case you need suggestions)
## Goal & deliverablesThe A 10-15 page project report detailing the case study. The report should be written preferably with LaTeX. All the figures (in .pdf format) and matlab files needed to reproduce the results. A README file detailing The names and SID's of the students involved. The contents of the .zip file (names and short description of each file).
The name of the .zip file should be of the form `<XXX>_EE227ASp12.zip`, where XXX is a tag for the project.*Example*:`GRAPHMOD_EE227ASp12.zip`.
## LogisticsEach project involves a team of 3-4 students. Groups and topics should be decided no later than **November 7**.There will be a single project grade for each group.
## TimelineBy **Sep. 16**: teams are formed.By **November 7**: topics are chosen.By **December 17**: final reports due, 11-12, in 421 SDH.
## Types of projectsProjects can have the following different formats: **Literature review**: The project describes in detail a set of 4-5 papers. This should include reproducing experiments. Example:*learning sparse graphical models*.**Design methodology**: the project describes a (possibly new) methodology for addressing a particular design problem. Here the focus is not on algorithms or past work. Example:*geometric programming for water distribution networks*.**Theory**: the project examines a theoretical issue related to convex optimization. Example:*quality of SDP relaxation for sparse PCA*.**Algorithms:**the project tests various algorithms for solving a particular type of problem. Example:*Stochastic vs. accelerated gradient for large-scale logistic regression.*
