From the Catalog: "Current research and research trends in Informatics. Forum for presentation and criticism by students of research work in progress. May be repeated for credit. "
All students are expected to attend all sessions. During the first hour of our weekly meeting we will typically have two student presentations. During the second hour we will join the rest of the Informatics Department in the Friday Research Hour. That hour will be devoted to faculty research talks, grad student talks (possibly including talks by students enrolled in 229), and other activities still to be determined.


Add/Drop Policy
Determined by the School of ICS policy.

All students enrolled in the course will earn a letter grade based upon: (a) class attendance and participation, (b) presentation(s) in class,You will receive one overall grade at the end of the class; no partial grades will be given.
To receive credit for the class you MUST make at least one presentation during the quarter. The presentation can be a dry-run for a conference talk you are scheduled to give, a practice talk for your candidacy exam, or, if you are not that far along in the program, a presentation of some papers you found to be interesting, or perhaps even a tutorial/overview of some interesting tools. Talks are limited to 30 minutes, including questions.
