Resources for Internal supervising

Starting in the Fall 2002 the Internal Supervisors at the Dept. of Computing Science are scheduled to supervise each Master's Theis Project according to the table below. Note that the given total resource includes the time for reading and commenting the Project report.
We take it for granted that you respect these time resources both as student and supervisor.

Time resources for supervising

Master Project, 30 ECTS-credits: 30 hours
Master Project, 2*30 ECTS-credits: 45 hours
Bachelor Project, 15 ECTS-credits: 20 hours
Bachelor Project, 2*15 ECTS-credits: 30 hours

 

Periods for oral presentations

For the accademic year 2009/2010 the following dates are scheduled

Remember to hand in your report to your internal advisor one week (at least) before the date Per Lindström should get the approved report.

Report writing using LaTex

There is a LaTex-skeleton of a Master's Thesis report that might be used when writing Master's Thesis reports in Computing Science. The skeleton is written in cooperation with Ola Ågren and Jonas Birme. It is strongly recommended you use this if you should write using LaTex. The following files must be downloaded.
The skeleton as a *.tex file
The class file used by the skeleton
A style file that you might need

Click below to read the skeleton file.
Post script version of the skeleton
pdf-version of the skeleton

An example of a database file for creating references using bibtex
An example database file

A very good reference for writing using LaTex is The Not So Short Introduction to LaTex
There you can learn about how to run latex, write references and creating reference lists using bibtex. How to browse the report using xdvi, converting to post-script using dvips, use options -Pcmz, and from type ps to pdf using ps2pdf.

 

Litterature and other readings

The Conference course (Student Conference in Computing Science, 6 credits (TDBD18) is an exellent "preparing course" for doing your Master's Thesis Project. There are some usefull links on how to write a good report, how to do research etc.

The Conference course by Jurgen Börstler (partly in Swedish)
The process of writing by Lena Palmqvist (in Swedish)
Writing and presenting your thesis or dissertation.
