STUDENT PAPER/PRESENTATION

Each student will write a 5-10 page paper and then present a quality 20-minute presentation on some processor, or some significant architecture feature. The student will be required to select a topic with instructor approval. The topic proposal should a 1-2 page paper describing the topic, the scope of the talk, and the goals of the presentation. A complete outline will then be required which covers the topics and organization of the presentation. The presentation itself will be in the form of a power point document, with complete notes for the presenter for each slide. The slide themselves should be brief, but notes sufficient for another person to understate the slides without explanation. Animations and illustrative graphics will be expected for a good grade.
