ENEE 698B Pre-Seminar Report Details

Each week, please answer the following questions for the main paper that will be presented.  You must present such a report for your own presentation as well. Answers must be submitted as typewritten hard copies (printouts) on the day of the presentation.  Late reports will NOT be accepted.  Emailing me the report is NOT acceptable.
  1. List the specific title and authors of the paper for which you are answering these questions. 
  2. What is one major problem or issue that the research described in the paper is addressing? 
  3. What is at least one solution to this problem that was previously addressed, but the authors identified problems with? What are those problems? 
  4. What is the solution that the authors propose? What are the merits of this solution? 
  5. Identify at least one potential problem with the author's solution that the author's have not addressed nor identified.
On average, you can answer each question above in one paragraph (5 to 10 lines). Much longer answers means more detail than necessary as far as the assignment is concerned; but you *will not* be penalized for longer answers if the answer is accurate and correct. Much shorter answers means not enough information; you *could* be penalized for insufficient detail.
