Your project will have two parts to turn in. One is the paper/writeup and the other is the video.

Turn-in Process

  • Writeup - Due October 7th by the end of class
    • Email paper to Jiasheng ( Please use pdf format.
    • Also, bring a paper copy to class
  • Video - Due October 7th by the end of class
    • Need it in a digital format - no tapes please
    • Please do one of the following:
      • Upload to a public web space (such as MediaFire) and send Jiasheng a link.
      • Upload to YouTube or Vimeo and send Jiasheng a link
    • If for some reason the above two are impossible, please bring the video in on a USB drive or a CD/DVD


  • The writeup will be 2 pages. It should follow the UIST (ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology) format. Links to the Latex and Word templates for this format can be found here.
  • You may submit appendices which include design documents or other diagrams such as circuit layouts. These will not count towards your two pages.
  • The sections we would like to see in your writeup are:
    • Introduction - What you're doing, why it's important
    • Previous/Related work - What's already been done and why are you different
    • Your Work
    • Discussion - What have you learned
    • Future Work - What remains to be done for your project
    • Conclusions - Take home points/Recap
    • References
  • Note: not all of the examples given have all of these sections.



  • The video should be roughly 3-5 minutes.
  • Show, don't tell
  • These videos should be more about telling a story than just a rundown of technology. Demonstrate your work in action.
    • A simple way to include a tech description is to just have a still of the technology with text and arrows for a short time.
