Course Language and Readings

All lectures will be given in English, and all written work must be submitted in English. The `text' for this course is a set of notes that I am writing [2] and a series of papers that will be made available on the course web-site1.

Grading System

300 points of the grade for the course will be based on a a paper presentation by the student. In addition 100 points will be based on a system exercise. The remaining 600 points will be based on a written exam.

Total points ($p$) Grade
$p \ge 800$ 5
$800 > p \ge 650$ 4
$650 > p \ge 500$ 3
$p < 500 $ U

Rules on Exercises and Paper Presentation

Students may work in groups of up to three persons on the system exercise but only alone must present one full paper (not a demo or tutorial paper) that was published at a VLDB, SIGMOD, IJCAI, KR, ER, PODS or ICDT conference. In addition I must approve the selected paper. Note that students who have not have an approved paper by May 10, will lose 100 points and will have a paper/project assigned by me.

The students must present the paper in a 20 minute talk with 10 minutes for questions. In all cases the students must write a well written 5 page report that further develops or proposes extensions to the given paper that they have presented.
