CE Junior Seminar
Presentations from faculty and industry representatives to discuss trends
in computer engineering, professionalism, ethics, the impact of engineering
in global and societal contexts, lifelong learning, and contemporary issues.
Instructor: Dr. Chris Myers
CE major status
Since the goal of this class is to learn about the computer engineering
discipline by listening to invited speakers, it is crucial that you attend
the seminars. There will be 14 seminars in this class with attendance at
each one counting towards 5 percent. This means that you must attend a
minimum of 13 seminars.
Also, since it is rude to the speakers to arrive late or leave early, you
will lose half of the credit for the day if you do so.
During this course, you will select one presentation that was particularly
interesting to you. You will then read more papers on the subject of this
talk and write a detailed report. You may want to contact the speaker to
get some ideas about which papers to read. A draft is due in-class on
November 20st (IMPORTANT: NO LATE WORK WILL BE ACCEPTED). You will receive
feedback on this draft on November 27th. You will then be required to
turn in the final version in-class on December 4th (AGAIN, NO LATE WORK
WILL BE ACCEPTED).
Your final report should be 4 pages single-spaced and double-column using
the IEEE transactions format described
here. This page includes both LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates that you
For your initial draft, please turn in both a version in this format and
another single-column and double-spaced to make it easier to make corrections
on the document.
You can receive extra credit by attending another seminar such as an
ECE or SoC distinguished lecture and writing a one page summary of the talk.
