Thanks everyone for an excellent conference - our authors and session chairs and our PC committee who were working hard until the last day. Well done!
According to all our session chairs (Jan, Ning, Radu, Christina, Maria, Ivica, Sara and me) presentations were really first class,
many of them even more interesting and delivered with much more enthusiasm than on professional research conferences.
For those in the class who did not present today, there will be a new chance in January, preliminary 13/1/2010 according to Jan.

Please send your final papers to EasyChair to be published in the online proceedings. Deadline 2/11.

2009-10-29

Gray marked in the schedule are papers which haven't yet improved their initial C grade and their presentations possibly will be made in January
if they get A grade. The
CONFERENCE SCHEDULE will be followed as planned, probably without those presentations.

2009-10-27

The last step which remains in the course is to present the paper on the mini-conference on Friday.
This event will contain fulfilling
the last two assignments of the course: assignment 6 and assignment 7 .

We expect you to bring your presentation file on a USB memory stick.
(I also recommend to have an extra copy on the web, just in case).

In both Lambda and Kappa lecture halls as you probably know there is both a computer and a projector
and we expect you to use that existing equipment in order to save time.

Here is the MINI CONFERENCE SCHEDULE
If you find any errors, please mail me as soon as possible!
We have to start at 9 o'clock to avoid evening presentations.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Our class lists show that everybody in the class was present at minimum 80% of lectures. Well done!
(That means that no one has to do extra exam. Very good, indeed.)

If you missed any discussion, please write and send in extra assignments.
Also, if you must revise your assignment, send it as soon as possible but not later than on Thursday.
(The deadline for all assignments as you know is the same day as the Mini conference.)

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The final paper version must be uploaded to EasyChair. Deadline Monday November 2.
The papers will be included in the workshop proceedings, which will be published online

Here comes the Schedule for paper review meetings - detailed, & Groups, chairs, times, rooms summary.

Yesterday on AI lecture by Peter Funk, we discussed the relationship between AI science and SF
and the role of scientific advisors for SF. Here is an interesting interview with Marvin Minsky, one of the founders of AI:
http://mitpress.mit.edu/e-books/Hal/chap2/two1.html Minsky  on AI and SF

Review meetings:
1. A student in a review group is assigned to take notes.
2. Students presence is noted.
3. Discuss each paper and try to unite on a group grade for the paper.
4. The PC chair decides HIS/HER opinion on the grade and informs the conference chair (Jan).

The grades are: 

• E (excellent) = accepted and fulfills very high demands, e.g., could be  used as educational  material, 

• A+ (accepted plus) = accepted as is, but can be graded as excellent > after some fixes,

• A (accepted) = accepted as is,

• C (completion) = paper must be fixed before it can be accepted to be presented on the conference.

• N (not accepted) = rewrite. 

You will be involved again for papers with grade A+ or C.

Only accepted papers will be presented at the mini-conference.

2009-10-21

GOOD NEWS: ALL REVIEW MEETINGS WILL BE ON MONDAY 26/10 THANKS TO OUR KIND PROFESSORS
WHO MADE ALL NECESSARY CHANGES IN THEIR BUSY SCHEDULES TO HELP US.

You must review the papers before Sunday 2009-10-25, 24.00, and upload the reviews to EasyChair.

On Monday, each review group will have two hours for reviewing - four parallell groups 10-12 and next four 13-15.
See the course schedule. Soon you will know which group you belong to and when your group will have the review meeting.

2009-10-20

All students active in the class should now have received an email with information about papers assigned to them for review.
The reason why some students have received 4 papers instead of 3 is that we received two papers very late.
 

Instruction for reviews with examples are given at IRCSE'09.


2009-10-20

All the authors are the PC (Programme Committee) members of the conference.
This is necessary because in ordinary conferences only PC members make reviews.
So in order for you to be able to submit your reviews, you log in as a PC.
Now you have two roles in the conference, as an author and as a PC member.

Later today you will get a list with 3 papers to review.

You must review the papers before Thursday 2009-10-22, 24.00, and upload the reviews to EasyChair.
You will find more information under the IRCSE'09 link. There also all review meeting information will be found soon.
(Jan, The conference chair)

Everybody in the class must have an EasyChair account, as you submit your reviews individually.

Here are the RESULTS in the course so far.

2009-10-19

We have got 24 papers up to now (see the list below) for the Mini conference. Well done!

Here are the exteded deadlines:

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Review meetings Friday    23/10 ( groups lead by Hans Hansson and Lars Asplund ) (we are trying to move those to Monday also)
                          and Monday 26/10 ( groups lead by Björn Lisper, Paul Pettersson, Sasikumar Punnekkat, Ning Xiong, Maria Linden and Radu Dobrin)


MINI CONFERENCE
WILL BE ON FRIDAY 2009-10-30:

                                    10:15-12:00 Kappa
                                    10:15-17:00 Lambda

So you see that we will have parallel sessions on Friday morning (Kappa & Lambda)
and plenum in Lambda in the afternoon 2009-10-30.

2009-10-14

We have decided (on popular demand) to
extend the deadline for paper submission to Sunday 24.00
so that you will have the whole weekend for work.

We are also trying to postpone the paper review meetings (which is not trivial because we book
several rooms  in parallell) - from 22/10 to 23/10.

As soon as paper submission is done, I will post examples of good reviews so that you know how to proceed
- several people have asked for it.

Please check this news regularly for updates! If you have problems with creatin an EasyChair account
let me know (some people from the class have already done that and it works with no problem).

2009-10-08

If you want to know what sort of articles that are expected for the mini-konference,
see how papers looked like last year. Of course, PhD students write about their research projects
and their papers have research standard, while undergraduate students write on topics they find
interesting and on a level with no deep technical details. (You will recognize a student paper if you find "student"
in the e-mail address of the author; if not, they are PhD's.)

2009-10-05

The next lecture will be in: http://www.mdh.se/internt/campus/lokalschema/lokaler/vasteras/hus-s/s2-704

2009-10-01

Today 15:15-17:00 (after Mats Björkman lecture)  we will have the discussion of Assignment 3: Three case studies in science history

Diogenes, Pablo, Subash and Nishanth. Plaese mail me as soon as possible! Gordana

Here comes explanation about Assignment 1 from Jan:

Hello!

You are not expected to write a technical review. Your review is expected to concentrate
on the form and language of the paper. Use the information you got from the
lecture “Paper Writing and Publication” last week.

Kind regards
Jan G

2009-09-04

 

You will get your User ID and password by mail, as soon as we get the class into LADOK system,
as soon as possible. I have already talked with Damir Isovic who will create identities for you.

If you didnt write any email in the list yet, please send me your address.

To upload your assignment takes no more than one minute, so please be patient, there is plenty of time until deadline.

 

Again, the rules for the Assignment 1 are as follows:

You send in your review of two articles first. (1A: deadline 9/9)

I make a web page with links to all reviews.

You take the reviews of your colleague who is right before you in the list
and you assess his or her reviews.

You send in your assessment (1B: deadline 12/9)

 

Me and Jan will read both your reviews and your assessments and grade them.

 

Observe that next lecture on Tuesday  September 8. (in Paros) starts 8.15.
