EE364b: Projects

Professor John Duchi (originally developed by Stephen Boyd), Stanford University

The project requirement deadlines are given below. Please read the project guidelines carefully. To do a project, you must submit and pass both the initial proposal and the midterm progress report. You may at any point decide to drop the project and take the final or go Cr/NCr. Do not be shy to utilize the TAs; as soon as you have a project idea, talk to a TA for at least 5 minutes.

The TAs have compiled a list of project ideas here.

Project proposals, reports, and posters must use mbox{LaTeX}, with a style that follows our template.

The final projects from 2014 can be found here, and the final projects from 2011 can be found here.


  • Initial proposal (2 page maximum), due Thursday 4/26/18, 5pm.

The project proposal should be brief, clear and concise. You should start by providing some background information on your problem (which should be free from mathematical symbols). Then you should give a clear and simple mathematical description of your problem. You can also include any baseline methods that you have tried, and explain how you propose to solve the problem. Briefly explain the challenges in your problem and any simplifications/assumptions that you have made.

  • Midterm progress report (4 pages maximum), due 5/18/18, 5pm

  • Final poster presentation, details TBA

  • Final report (6 pages maximum), due Wednesday 6/6/18, 5pm.
