hi folks

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 in the week of 21 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 often 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/ ... incidentally, the 
one project i supervised in 2010 was specified by Stellenbosch Uni.

if you have any questions, feel free to shout
