IT399 Seminar course (1 credit)
Fall 2020

Instructor: Dr. Majed Alowaidi (m.alowaidi@mu.edu.sa); Phone: 016404 6720;

office: v. dean CCIS

Class time & place: Mondays 15:00 – 15:50, Room (On Zoom, until the 5th week)

Brief: This course is one credit and aimed to provide students with practice of speaking in front of a scientific audience and to explore recent topics in detail. Students are asked to do research about topics and organize presentations for faculty and their classmates. The topics may include any aspect of the computer science disciplines and must be approved by the instructor in advance (the schedule is provided for deadline). Unless cleared with me, you may not give a presentation similar to one you have delivered in another class. If this is your second time taking seminar, then your topic should be substantially different that your previous one.

To help students improve as speakers, each student will receive feedback from the instructor. After your seminar, I’ll provide you with a feedback of your weaknesses and how to improve your performance.


· You must use your university email and write your name at any email you send. Non university emails and anonymous email will be ignored.

· Attendance at each seminar is mandatory for all students enrolled.

· In addition, students are expected to attend all other seminars in the class, such as invited guest speakers.

· It is assumed that students will actively participate by asking questions of the speaker.

· Due dates will be established for topics, abstracts, and announcements.

· Failure to meet deadlines will also be taken into account in final grading. It is a Zero Tolerance!

· Submit a soft copy of your topic description to me by 11:59 pm on (TBA).

· At that final submission time you will turn in a tentative title, a paragraph or two describing the topic, as well as several pertinent references (5-8 is sufficient).

· As known in scientific paper, you must proof-read your work for grammar and spelling.

· Use a citation format from a journal in your discipline, and be consistent in your format.

· Text format is your choice of Word or Latex. However, Latex has bonus mark.

· Each student should give two presentations.

· The first one will last for 10 minutes be a practice seminar in front of the class. It should give introductory slides (outline) describing your research topic briefly. This include the sections of your research topic, your topic broad, approximate research papers and to show whether you follow the instructions or not.

· Class members (and I) will take notes on various aspects of your seminar and give you feedback and constructive criticism once you finish.

· For the second one, your seminar presentation should last for 15 minutes and cover several (3-4, or more) related papers in the given area. Tell a complete story about your chosen topic and the covered content.

· You should be thoroughly familiar with the literature on your topic.

· You should strive to organize your seminar into a cohesive presentation, and be selective about what you present. Be sure to target your audience and do not use the jargon (no sense) of the field.

· Whereas everyone in the audience is educated, many will be unfamiliar with the topic. Explain concepts simply and clearly, and define all terms and acronyms.

· Be prepared to answer questions after your seminar.

· The seminar will be timed, and should be ±2 minutes of the allotted time.

· Students will submit a detailed outline (1 – 1.5 pages) of their presentation and also a brief abstract (one or two paragraphs; 250 words max.) describing their presentation.

· A draft of the abstract is due by noon on (TBA) prior to your first seminar.

· I will review both your outline and abstract and return them with a feedback to you within a two or four days.

· I will also ask two of your fellow students to review your abstract and outline (thus the need for three hard copies).

· You will revise your abstract (perhaps more than once, at my discretion). Revisions are expected back promptly (1-2 days). The final draft of your abstract must be at least 3 days prior to your second seminar (by noon TBA for a Monday seminar).


Proposal Seminar Format:

· Give an introduction and background information on your topic and the conclusion. What relevant research has been performed previously?

· State the problem(s) that remain unanswered or need optimization.

· Clearly state your objectives and give the specific hypotheses you wish to test.

· Describe the methodology you will use to test your hypotheses. Be sure you fully understand your chosen methods. Give reasons why you chose these methods over other approaches.

· Present any data you have collected thus far.

· Describe what remains to be done, and what you expect to find.

· Explain the significance of your findings (or potential future findings).

· A seminar sample is provided to follow.

Seminar Topics:

· A file contains all suggested topics is provided.

· You should pick a topic to cover and the pick-up is based on first come first served.

· Each topic is assigned to Only one student.

Abstract—This electronic document is a “live” template and already defines the components of your paper as you notice below [title, text, heads, etc.] in its style sheet. *CRITICAL: Do Not Use Symbols, Special Characters, or Math in Paper Title or Abstract. (Abstract)

Keywords—components, important words; (key words that you think are important to mention here)

Introduction (Heading 1)
This template, modified in MS Word 2007 and saved as a “Word 97-2003 Document” for the PC, provides authors with most of the formatting specifications needed for preparing electronic versions of their papers. All standard paper components have been specified for three reasons: (1) ease of use when formatting individual papers, (2) automatic compliance to electronic requirements that facilitate the concurrent or later production of electronic products, and (3) conformity of style throughout a conference proceedings. Margins, column widths, line spacing, and type styles are built-in; examples of the type styles are provided throughout this document and are identified in italic type, within parentheses, following the example. Some components, such as multi-leveled equations, graphics, and tables are not prescribed, although the various table text styles are provided. The formatter will need to create these components, incorporating the applicable criteria that follow.

Ease of Use
Selecting a Template (Heading 2)
First, confirm that you have the correct template for your paper size. This template has been tailored for output on the US-letter paper size. If you are using A4-sized paper, please close this file and download the file “MSW_A4_format”.

Maintaining the Integrity of the Specifications
Identify applicable sponsor/s here. If no sponsors, delete this text box (sponsors).

The template is used to format your paper and style the text. All margins, column widths, line spaces, and text fonts are prescribed; please do not alter them. You may note peculiarities. For example, the head margin in this template measures proportionately more than is customary. This measurement and others are deliberate, using specifications that anticipate your paper as one part of the entire proceedings, and not as an independent document. Please do not revise any of the current designations.

Prepare Your Paper Before Styling
Before you begin to format your paper, first write and save the content as a separate text file. Keep your text and graphic files separate until after the text has been formatted and styled. Do not use hard tabs, and limit use of hard returns to only one return at the end of a paragraph. Do not add any kind of pagination anywhere in the paper. Do not number text heads-the template will do that for you.

Finally, complete content and organizational editing before formatting. Please take note of the following items when proofreading spelling and grammar:

Abbreviations and Acronyms
Define abbreviations and acronyms the first time they are used in the text, even after they have been defined in the abstract. Abbreviations such as IEEE, SI, MKS, CGS, sc, dc, and rms do not have to be defined. Do not use abbreviations in the title or heads unless they are unavoidable.

Use either SI (MKS) or CGS as primary units. (SI units are encouraged.) English units may be used as secondary units (in parentheses). An exception would be the use of English units as identifiers in trade, such as “3.5-inch disk drive”.

Avoid combining SI and CGS units, such as current in amperes and magnetic field in oersteds. This often leads to confusion because equations do not balance dimensionally. If you must use mixed units, clearly state the units for each quantity that you use in an equation.

Do not mix complete spellings and abbreviations of units: “Wb/m2” or “webers per square meter”, not “webers/m2”. Spell out units when they appear in text: “. . . a few henries”, not “. . . a few H”.

Use a zero before decimal points: “0.25”, not “.25”. Use “cm3”, not “cc”. (bullet list)

The equations are an exception to the prescribed specifications of this template. You will need to determine whether or not your equation should be typed using either the Times New Roman or the Symbol font (please no other font). To create multileveled equations, it may be necessary to treat the equation as a graphic and insert it into the text after your paper is styled.

Number equations consecutively. Equation numbers, within parentheses, are to position flush right, as in (1), using a right tab stop. To make your equations more compact, you may use the solidus ( / ), the exp function, or appropriate exponents. Italicize Roman symbols for quantities and variables, but not Greek symbols. Use a long dash rather than a hyphen for a minus sign. Punctuate equations with commas or periods when they are part of a sentence, as in

ab 

Note that the equation is centered using a center tab stop. Be sure that the symbols in your equation have been defined before or immediately following the equation. Use “(1)”, not “Eq. (1)” or “equation (1)”, except at the beginning of a sentence: “Equation (1) is . . .”

Some Common Mistakes
The word “data” is plural, not singular.

The subscript for the permeability of vacuum 0, and other common scientific constants, is zero with subscript formatting, not a lowercase letter “o”.

In American English, commas, semi-/colons, periods, question and exclamation marks are located within quotation marks only when a complete thought or name is cited, such as a title or full quotation. When quotation marks are used, instead of a bold or italic typeface, to highlight a word or phrase, punctuation should appear outside of the quotation marks. A parenthetical phrase or statement at the end of a sentence is punctuated outside of the closing parenthesis (like this). (A parenthetical sentence is punctuated within the parentheses.)

A graph within a graph is an “inset”, not an “insert”. The word alternatively is preferred to the word “alternately” (unless you really mean something that alternates).

Do not use the word “essentially” to mean “approximately” or “effectively”.

In your paper title, if the words “that uses” can accurately replace the word “using”, capitalize the “u”; if not, keep using lower-cased.

Be aware of the different meanings of the homophones “affect” and “effect”, “complement” and “compliment”, “discreet” and “discrete”, “principal” and “principle”.

Do not confuse “imply” and “infer”.

The prefix “non” is not a word; it should be joined to the word it modifies, usually without a hyphen.

There is no period after the “et” in the Latin abbreviation “et al.”.

The abbreviation “i.e.” means “that is”, and the abbreviation “e.g.” means “for example”.

An excellent style manual for science writers is [7].

Using the Template
After the text edit has been completed, the paper is ready for the template. Duplicate the template file by using the Save As command, and use the naming convention prescribed by your conference for the name of your paper. In this newly created file, highlight all of the contents and import your prepared text file. You are now ready to style your paper; use the scroll down window on the left of the MS Word Formatting toolbar.

Authors and Affiliations
The template is designed so that author affiliations are not repeated each time for multiple authors of the same affiliation. Please keep your affiliations as succinct as possible (for example, do not differentiate among departments of the same organization). This template was designed for two affiliations.

For author/s of only one affiliation (Heading 3): To change the default, adjust the template as follows.
Selection (Heading 4): Highlight all author and affiliation lines.
Change number of columns: Select the Columns icon from the MS Word Standard toolbar and then select “1 Column” from the selection palette.
Deletion: Delete the author and affiliation lines for the second affiliation.
For author/s of more than two affiliations: To change the default, adjust the template as follows.
Selection: Highlight all author and affiliation lines.
Change number of columns: Select the “Columns” icon from the MS Word Standard toolbar and then select “1 Column” from the selection palette.
Highlight author and affiliation lines of affiliation 1 and copy this selection.
Formatting: Insert one hard return immediately after the last character of the last affiliation line. Then paste down the copy of affiliation 1. Repeat as necessary for each additional affiliation.
Reassign number of columns: Place your cursor to the right of the last character of the last affiliation line of an even numbered affiliation (e.g., if there are five affiliations, place your cursor at end of fourth affiliation). Drag the cursor up to highlight all of the above author and affiliation lines. Go to Column icon and select “2 Columns”. If you have an odd number of affiliations, the final affiliation will be centered on the page; all previous will be in two columns.
Identify the Headings
Headings, or heads, are organizational devices that guide the reader through your paper. There are two types: component heads and text heads.

Component heads identify the different components of your paper and are not topically subordinate to each other. Examples include Acknowledgments and References and, for these, the correct style to use is “Heading 5”. Use “figure caption” for your Figure captions, and “table head” for your table title. Run-in heads, such as “Abstract”, will require you to apply a style (in this case, italic) in addition to the style provided by the drop down menu to differentiate the head from the text.

Text heads organize the topics on a relational, hierarchical basis. For example, the paper title is the primary text head because all subsequent material relates and elaborates on this one topic. If there are two or more sub-topics, the next level head (uppercase Roman numerals) should be used and, conversely, if there are not at least two sub-topics, then no subheads should be introduced. Styles named “Heading 1”, “Heading 2”, “Heading 3”, and “Heading 4” are prescribed.

Figures and Tables
Positioning Figures and Tables: Place figures and tables at the top and bottom of columns. Avoid placing them in the middle of columns. Large figures and tables may span across both columns. Figure captions should be below the figures; table heads should appear above the tables. Insert figures and tables after they are cited in the text. Use the abbreviation “Fig. 1”, even at the beginning of a sentence.

Example of a figure caption. (figure caption)

Figure Labels: Use 8 point Times New Roman for Figure labels. Use words rather than symbols or abbreviations when writing Figure axis labels to avoid confusing the reader. As an example, write the quantity “Magnetization”, or “Magnetization, M”, not just “M”. If including units in the label, present them within parentheses. Do not label axes only with units. In the example, write “Magnetization (A/m)” or “Magnetization {A[m(1)]}”, not just “A/m”. Do not label axes with a ratio of quantities and units. For example, write “Temperature (K)”, not “Temperature/K”.

Acknowledgment (Heading 5)
The preferred spelling of the word “acknowledgment” in America is without an “e” after the “g”. Avoid the stilted expression “one of us (R. B. G.) thanks …”. Instead, try “R. B. G. thanks…”. Put sponsor acknowledgments in the unnumbered footnote on the first page.

The template will number citations consecutively within brackets [1]. The sentence punctuation follows the bracket [2]. Refer simply to the reference number, as in [3]—do not use “Ref. [3]” or “reference [3]” except at the beginning of a sentence: “Reference [3] was the first …”

Number footnotes separately in superscripts. Place the actual footnote at the bottom of the column in which it was cited. Do not put footnotes in the reference list. Use letters for table footnotes.

Unless there are six authors or more give all authors’ names; do not use “et al.”. Papers that have not been published, even if they have been submitted for publication, should be cited as “unpublished” [4]. Papers that have been accepted for publication should be cited as “in press” [5]. Capitalize only the first word in a paper title, except for proper nouns and element symbols.

For papers published in translation journals, please give the English citation first, followed by the original foreign-language citation [6].

We suggest that you use a text box to insert a graphic (which is ideally a 300 dpi TIFF or EPS file, with all fonts embedded) because, in an MSW document, this method is somewhat more stable than directly inserting a picture.

To have non-visible rules on your frame, use the MSWord “Format” pull-down menu, select Text Box > Colors and Lines to choose No Fill and No Line.

What you need in the outline is as follows:

1- The outline is a complete one page that shows the expectations of your seminar topic.

2- Your topic’s title.

3- A short abstract about the topic. It is assumed to around 100 words.

4- The introduction section that must include the problem statement (thesis statement) of your topic. Also, this should have the expected other sections.

5- At least you should have one reference. You must write from your own words.

6- You might have a table or figure but if it is not yours, you must cite it.

7- The Reference section is important because you will have one information resource and you might have a picture or table.
