The seminar will study the notions of CONTEXT as they appear in different areas of computer science: databases, artificial intelligence, and distributed systems.
The students will be required to give a class presentation and prepare a report. Those will be based on an original research or survey paper, an implementation project, or an article review. Class attendance and participation are mandatory. Prerequisite: CSE 562 or equivalent, and some background in logic. It is possible to register for 1-3 credits and/or obtain a letter grade. The course project can be used to satisfy the M.S. project requirement.
The seminar is not suitable for incoming graduate students, unless they already have a strong background in databases, AI or distributed systems, and some grasp of logic.
