hi folks

(apologies for the cross-posting - please ignore if you saw this already)

i am about to start the process of writing up descriptions for computer science honours projects at UCT for 2010, and (as usual) wonder if anyone is interested in collaborative projects...

if you have a suitably-sized research problem related to digital libraries (or some other area that i am interested in) that might benefit from 2-3 students (typically very competent programmers) working on it for 3-4 months, please contact me by mid-february to talk about it.

basically, we do all the work - all you specify is the problem and possibly steer the students if necessary. right now all we need is short (500 words?) descriptions of the projects. the students then select their projects off a very long list and if a particular project gets selected then we start work in earnest (otherwise we try again next year or some such thing).

it seems i can only specify 3 projects - i can put together 3 projects internally, but would prefer to work with others. i can also steer a conversation with other members of our staff if there is a more appropriate supervisor e.g., in areas related to graphics, AI, databases, etc. and this has worked successfully many times in the past.

for some ideas on the breadth and depth of our past projects, visit the honours project archive linked off http://pubs.cs.uct.ac.za/ ... or have a look at the honours projects specifically related to digital libraries off http://www.cs.uct.ac.za/research/dll/students/ ... or if you have any questions, feel free to shout
