Ryerson University

Part 2: Oral Presentation

Due: T.B.A.


During the Final Exam time period, you will each be giving an oral presentation of the paper you have chosen as your Presentation Topic as well as the results from your supporting litterature.

In your presentations, you will be expected to cover 3 main areas related to the paper you are presenting:

  • The background for this paper: what was the state of this particular field or technology before the research that led to this paper (and possibly to the technology or products described in the paper) and what were some of the open questions in this particular field, or what problems were being experienced that led to this advance?
  • The paper itself: what are the results of this research, possibly including technologies developed as a result?
  • Impact of paper: what was the significance of these results and how have the field/research/technology evolved since the publication of this paper? Support your arguments with information gathered through a review of the citations for this paper.

Presentation Schedule

Here is the schedule of presentations. Each person will have a 15 minute slot during which they will present their paper and answer questions. Your presentation should be between 10 and 12 minutes with the remaining time used for questions. There will be 5 minutes between presentations to switch. You are expected to be present during the entire 3 hour period. As you will notice, no breaks are currently planned. If you need to take a break, please try not to disturb your colleagues during their presentations; i.e. please take your break during question periods and switches between presentations.

Presentation Technology

TBA is a mini presentation technology room which will be set up for your use: just bring your presentation on a USB key. In addition to the computer supplied in the room, I will bring my laptop which can display power point, word, and pdf documents. If you want to use different software, please come come install it on my laptop on TBA.

TBA also has a blackboard and a document projector.

Hand In and Grading

You do not need to hand in anything for this presentation. You will be graded on your oral presentation using the Oral Presentation marking scheme.

You will be graded by both the course instructor and other computer science professors. You will not be receiving your presentation grade straight away as these multiple grades will need to be combined into a single grade first.
