Getting Started

What you should be doing as soon as you have a topic:
  • think about the topic ... understand all aspects, etc.
  • find out what others have done before (reading required)
    ( Google Scholar ... Citeseer ... DBLP ... Wikipedia(?) )
  • consider what's needed to evaluate your work
    (don't bother considering evaluation-by-bluff ... it doesn't work)
  • make notes on everything that you look at/think about
  • set up a thesis web site? (for holding the notes)
  • meet your supervisor and find out what they expect
  • establish a consistent Thesis working pattern (weekly meeting?)
Do all of this before week 4 and assignments get heavy.
