Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

The two weeks deliver the principles required for ethical and secure execution of this software engineering project. It also provides an opportunity for students to meet with each other and form groups, and learn about the projects available. The weeks thereafter will be dedicated to making progress with the project, communicating this to the instructors (via periodic individual reports and group meetings), and producing the expected deliverables. Group meetings will take place roughly biweekly.
