Spring 2004: Privacy-Preserving Data-Mining


The seminar is scheduled to be on every Tuesday, starting from 20.01.2004. During most of the seminars, either one or two students will present an about 30 minutes long presentation and a written survey of 4-5 pages on some subject, followed by short discussions, so that every seminar will take approximately 100 minutes.

Survey and presentation slides will be made available on the web. The survey must be available to the tutor one week before the presentation. (The only possible exception is the first presenter.)

Every student also gets an opponent, who will given the survey before the presentation. The opponent has, for the presentation, to prepare a 2-2.5 page resumé (that should be made available to the presenter and to the responsible teacher two days before the presentation; the resumé will also be made available on the web), and lead discussions with the presenter. If necessary, the presenter must revise his or her survey, based on these remarks, within one week; the revised version will the be put on the web.

Graduation Requirements

To graduate, every student must submit his or her survey timely, give a good presentation, be able to answer to the discussions, and be a constructive and friendly opponent. The purpose of review and feedback is to improve the quality of the work. Every presenter is expected to take into account comments given by the opponent and the audience while presentation and submit a correct version of the survey. The opponent must verify whether the comments where taken in account.

Document formats

Both surveys and reviews are expected to be typeset in LaTeX, using the standard fonts and fontsizes. Please submit both the LaTeX source file and a .pdf or .ps version.

Please see the 2003 course for example papers and reviews.
