CS7962 -- Position Paper Guidelines
After reading the articles for the class, you will write a position
paper which captures your own thoughts about the readings. For each topic, there will be readings and additional reference. Your position paper should be based on the required readings. My guess is that these will need to be about 1 page in length, but you may use
whatever you feel is adequate.
What matters is not the length of your position paper; it's whether the position
paper can demonstrate that you've read and understood the required readings. Here's a possible outline for the position paper:
Although you are encouraged to discuss the papers with your
colleagues, each student will write their own position papers -- this
cannot be done in groups. You should add your position paper
to the class Wiki BEFORE class.
- What is the article about?
- Why is the problem addressed interesting/important?
- What are the positive aspects of the article?
- What are the negative aspects of the article?
- Which relevant problems the article does not address?
- List any ideas you had while reading the paper
