Literature Assignment (SC42050)


The program for the literature symposium is now available here to download:
It will be held in Drebbelweg building. The whole group needs to be present and needs to stay at least for the whole block of 4 or 3 presentations, so coming and leaving only during the break is possible. If a group needs to change a time slot, it is possible, but please negotiate it with another group directly and let Ivan Koryakovskiy (i dot koryakovskiy at tudelft dot nl) know about it.


This assignment aims to help students in gaining experience with searching for literature and writing a survey. The assignment will be performed in groups of 4 students. You can use the discussion board to get in contact with colleagues and form groups (you must be logged in in Blackboard to use the discussion board).

Assignment material:

  1. General assignment description (PDF). This description applies to all the assignments; please read it carefully.

  2. Paper review form (DOC). Use this form to review the paper of your group.

  3. Presentation review form (DOC). Use this form to review a presentation tryout of your group.

  4. A unique assignment topic from the list below.

List of assignment topics

Each group of students will choose one topic from this list. Have a look at the topics below, to determine which of them fits your background and preferences best. (If you have problems opening some PDFs, please save them to your hard drive and open them from there.) Instructions on how to sign up for a particular topic will be posted after the start of the course. Select two topics, in order of preference, and send an email to Ivan Koryakovskiy (i dot koryakovskiy at tudelft dot nl), with the following information:

  • E-mail subject “[SC42050] Literature Assignment”

  • Your names and student numbers

  • The two selected topics with the complete titles and corresponding numbers. The reason for selecting two topics is to account for the possibility of conflicting selections. If two or more groups select the same first topic, then this topic is given to the group that requested it earliest, while the other group receives their second preference. To minimize the possibility of such conflicts, topics that are allocated to groups will be removed from the list as soon as possible by changing its status.

You will then receive a confirmation email that contains the title of the (single) assignment topic that has been allocated to your group.

  • To acknowledge their support, we have included the names of the authors of each of the proposed assignments. However, please do not contact them for questions regarding the assignment.

  • If you have questions, please contact the literature assistant (email address is given above).

Review Groups

Each group member will also review the paper and or the presentation of another group. In this way, you will have the possibility to improve the assignment before final submission of the paper and presentation by considering the comments from the other group. A document Answer to Reviewers has to be submitted, indicating how the comments from the other group were included (or why not). In the following table the review groups are assigned to each other. The deadline for submitting your paper and presentation to each other is March 22 2017, and the deadline for the responses is no later than one week, namely March 29 2017.
