# CSCE 782: Final Project

## Due: 3 May 2010, @noon

For the final project you have the option of a
programming-oriented or a research-oriented final
project. Whichever project you decide to do you must first meet
with me to get it approved.

## Programming Project

Choose a paper from AAMAS 04,
AAMAS
05, AAMAS 06,
AAMAS
07, AAAI 05,
AAAI
06, or AAMAS
07, 08, 09 and implement the algorithm they describe. In
many cases you will need to make some simplifying assumptions.

You can also choose to implement any of the algorithms
referenced in the book that are not already implemented, or
provide better visualizations of existing algorithms (for didactic
purpose).

A final option is to build a NetLogo simulation of a multiagent
problem in a separate domain, one which you are already familiar
with.

## Research Project

Your deliverable will be a paper that

- summarizes exisiting research on a specific topic, with appropriate citations, and
- either presents a new algorithm/protocol/??? along the same lines or organizes these results in a novel way (think "survey paper").

The final paper should be at least 10 pages long. I will be
looking to see that you understand the topic at hand and how the
various contributions relate to each other. You will be looking
at papers beyond the above conferences. I use scholar.google.
