session will last for two hours. All team members
are expected to show up and be there during the two hours. You
should treat this as your final exam. The session assignment can

What you need to prepare
- Posters - Your should prepare 8 A4 size print
out that highlight your project to the audience. Your poster
should (a) attract attention from audience; (b) provide an overview
of your work; (c) highlight the novelty /contribution of your
project. SIMPLY POSTING TEXT FROM YOUR PAPER WILL NOT MAKE AN
EFFECTIVE POSTER PRESENTATION. (Note: after your presentation,
submit your poster to ooiwt via email together with your research
paper by 15 Nov 2003 for grading.)
- Draft paper - You should prepare draft
copies of your paper for distribution to the audience. (About 3 copies
should be more than enough.)
- Demo - If you do an implementation-based
project, you should show a demo. If you require additional hardware
or technical support, please let us know. The rooms have
12 SPNP points each, and wireless LAN is available. You may want
to make sure your demo works on SPNP/wireless LAN.

give a 10 minutes presentation to the evaluator (i.e., ooiwt)
and other audience about your project.
- Q&A session - The evaluator may ask
any of the team member questions regarding the project.
I am aware that many of you are part-time students and have to
work during the day. Please try to ask your company for exam leave
to attend the session. (Your company should have indicated that
it will "grant the applicant the necessary time off for attending
classes and to take such examinations as required by the University"
in your admission application form).
You are expected to submit a research paper describing your project
by 15th of November.
Please send your paper in word or pdf format using email to ooiwt
with the number "5248" somewhere in the subject. Your
poster (in powerpoint/pdf format) should be submitted as well.

Please follow the ACM proceeding style guidelines. Please use the
given LaTeX (recommended) or Word template so that to ensure that
there are little variations in margin and font size.
