Project: 35% 05/08
Homework: 30% Bi-Weekly
Students may work together in study groups but all assignments must be completed individually. Homework will be due in class on the designated date. No late homework will be accepted unless prior notification and arrangements are made. The course will have a final computer vision term project. You will be required to submit a project report in the form of a conference styled manuscript and make a presentation.


05/06/13 Sample final questions [pdf] are available for study. These are from a previous year so not all questions pertain to this class. You are responsible for all the topics we covered, including the technical papers.
04/29/14 Class canceled for today. We will not be doing the CONDESATION paper anymore.
04/02/14 Please sign-up for a presentation paper by Thursday. A recommended list of papers is available [link] to help you make a selection.
03/23/14 Read [Stauffer and Grimson 1999] [pdf] for Tu. 3/25 lecture. You should turn in a 1/2 page summary of the paper along with 3 questions you had while reading for discussion during class.
03/13/14 Project Description [pdf] and Project Ideas [pdf] are available online. Project proposals are due Tuesday 3/25 after Spring Break.
01/09/14 Welcome to Spring 2014.
