CS 641 Paper, Dr. Lawlor
Again, I'd like you to write a research paper. It doesn't have to be a
completely novel topic (no paper actually is), and it doesn't have to
describe only your own work (referencing other people's work is always
recommended), but it has to look like a research paper, and consist of
100% your own writing.
It is perfectly OK if paper 2 extends work you did in paper 1.
Research or Applied Topics
Any of the topics from paper 1 are fine, or now we also have some more recent material:
- Anything related to multicore, cache coherence, or scalable shared memory.
- Anything related to networks, MPI, message passing, or cloud computing.
Let me remind you that according to the syllabus, the two papers
together make up 40% of your final grade. I will generously
consider your outlines as consisting of half of paper 1, but most folks
don't have many points left to lose from paper 2!
- Be prepared to talk for 5 minutes and have 10 minutes of topic discussion in class Thursday, April 19.
- Give me an anonymous review draft by Thursday, April 26. I will send these around the class for anonymous peer review (double blind).
- Your reviewer feedback must be returned by Tuesday, May 1.
- Give us a presentation in class on Thursday, May 3.
- Turn in your final draft by midnight Tuesday, May 8 (the day of the final exam).
