Phase I: (Submitting Article Titles.)

Please send 3 (Max. 5) topic-titles of subjects with references from journal articles.

For each topic (3 topics, up to five), select three appropriate references (journal articles).

For each article, use complete information, including Author(s), Title, Reference, Pages, Publisher, and Date.

Some suggested sources:

Must be recent! (>= 2003. if possible)

Other sources must be approved by the course instructor.

Please, visit the library and check for papers.

Internet articles will not do the job, unless it is an electronic copy of a journal article.

At this stage, no constraints are added.

Once this phase is complete, the second phase will start.

This is a multi-phase iterative process. Stay tuned.

Remember:we continue to do better for the next 55 years

Note: To send the topics, use E-mail, and use the subject:


Where ST991234 is your student ID #, and 0n = 01 or 02 is section No. Please use your ID #, 
and not 991234

Please make sure the articles are not from any previous work, or any planned future work.

It is not fair to get rewarded for the same work more than once!

Furthermore, it a chance to learn something new.

Learning by doing is one of the best ways to learn.

List of topics Due by 9:00 PM one day before next class.

Phase II: (Submitting the references.)

Due date for submitting the three references (After topic selection is finalized.)

Each team-member (student) will use the same topic for both:
