Final project (text)

This is the PDF of the final project for the Academic Year 2010-2011, as presented in the lesson of May 12th. A HTML version of the project can be accessed through professor's web page.

Deadlines for the submission of the project

The deadlines for project submission (project report + project code tar.gz) are the following ones

Exam Deadline for project submission
1st summer term June 6th
2nd summer term June 27th
3rd summer term July 15th
4th term Sept. 16th


A student (group of two students) wishing to start working on the project should first “negotiate” the project. He/she should communicate to the professor the project chosen sending an email (subject “SPM project choice”). The email text should give an idea of

  • which project subject has been chosen and
  • of the unspecified parameters of the project.

In case of “free application”, as an example, the application chosen should be introduced; in case of any application, the framework chosen for the implementation is to be specified; etc. The professor, in a short amount of time, returns an acknowledge message possibly including more detailed requirements and/or modifications of the choices made by the student/s. In particular cases, the professor may ask the student(s) to discuss the project assignment during question time. After the acknowledge, the assignment is registered on the project web page and the student(s) may start working. Project messages may be sent from May 16th on. The assignment negotiated will be valid for the whole academic year, that is the professor expects the agreed project is submitted in one of the exam sessions of the Academic Year 2010-2011 (therefore up to February 2012, included).

Assignments (so far)

The table below states the project assignments assessed so far (sorted by student surname). As of the number of students that have chosen the Image stream processor *and* the Matrix multiplication Skandium project up to now I prefer not accepting any more projects of this type. You can choose Image stream processor/Matrix multiplication with another framework or another application with Skandium.

Students implementing the project on multicore architectures may have a temporary, local account on a dual quad core Intel of our department ( Ottavinareale is not integrated with the facilities so you cannot use your “student” account to access it. The procedure to obtain the account (only for those that already registered the project with the professor and appear in the list of assignments in this page) requires you come in my studio (during question time or in any other time I'm in) in such a way I immediately activate you an account and you can set your own password to access it.

More information on the usage of ottavinareale may be found at this web page.
