BETTER INFORMATICS

### Honours Project | drps, info Edit on GitHub

• You can manage citations with JabRef or Zotero
• Use DBLP to generate .bib citations over Google Scholar
• Write your Intro, Conclusion and Abstract last — your project might change by the time you’ve written everything else.
• Introduction: Similar in that you want to be general, but you have more space. You need to talk about the Motivation, Objective, Contribution and Organisation.
• Conclusion: An overview of the project and your results. You’ll want to have “Critical evaluation of own work” in here and also discuss how the project has helped you (the latter isn’t in the marking scheme however was advised to include this).
• Ask your supervisor if you can use “I” and what tense to use. My supervisor banned “I” and mandated past tense, YMMV.
• Outstanding undergraduate projects - Recent dissertations which have scored 80% and above.
• A Template-based Model for Automatic Image Description (2014), feedback, with Mirella Lapata (83%)
• WILDEBEAST: A webservice for real time characterisation of infectious disease epidemics, supervised by Andrew Rambaut (80%)

An overall studyguide for TTS 2013-2014: all lecture slides summarized added things from notabene, said in lecture, and just figured out by Sophia.
