Jump to: navigation, search

Here is our group-topic forming exercise.

  • Each Person should put down your full name, your discipline, and numbers 1 and 2 on different topics to indicate your preference.
  • Right now, each topic is a problem statement that can be further defined by the to-be-formed team.


For example, in the below scenario, Bob picked Topic A as his first choice, and Topics B the second -

- Topic A: Bob Johnson (HCI-CS, 1), Mary Smith (Health Systems 2) - Topic B: Jay Stewards (CS 1), Bob Johnson (HCI-CS, 2), Lily Young (HS 1)


  • If you already have a team together, please write down the team name and all the info about the team members too

- Topic C: Team Hot Shot - Ashley Ginger (HS), Ben Stone (CS), Carl Roger (BC) -1, - Topic D: Mark Wise (ECE 1), Roger Thompson (CS 2)


  • Please input your preference before Thursday October 14th 9 am.


Then your professors would look at the balance of the disciplines and expertise to announce the team compositions.

Before the end of the day on Thursday, Oct 14 - each person should have a team and a topic, and each team is expected to present on October 21st, Thursday a short 5 minute presentation that includes (1) further definition of the problem statement, (2) at least 5 references about the topic, and (3) at least 2 possible alternative solutions for the problem.

Post your presentation at the Project 5 on http://www.hsi.gatech.edu/icu/index.php/Project



Here are the topics - problem statements for the final projects.


Please follow the instruction above to add your name (or the name of your team and the team members) You are welcome to add notes under any topic to make it more specific and focused. (site specific, task specific, etc)
