COSC-716-01 Topics in Information Systems
The purpose of this seminar is to expose graduate students to current methods and practice of research in information retrieval systems by critically analyzing scholarly articles and conducting their own investigation. Students will learn current practice in the field by critically analyzing assigned or selected papers using criteria from peer-reviewed conferences and presenting their analysis to the class, which they will summarize in an annotated bibliography. Students will undertake their own investigation of a research problem of their choosing. Toward the end of the semester, students will submit a draft report describing their project and findings, which the members of the class will review and critique. The seminar will culminate with a presentation of their study and its findings, and the final report and the annotated bibliography will be due at the end of the semester.
Graduate students only. At least one (prefer two+) course(s) in information systems and a course in algorithms.
