COS 429 - Computer Vision

Fall 2011

Course home Outline and lecture notes Assignments


There will be four assignments, each consisting of a written section and a programming section. These are to be completed individually, and together will count for 70% of the final grade.

Final project

In addition, there will be a final project for the course, to be completed in groups of 2-3. This will be worth 30% of the final grade. Final project presentations will be Jan. 12 and 16, and a written report will be due at the end of reading period.

Late Policy

Assignments 1 through 4 are due at 11:59 PM on the due date. You are given 3 free late days that you can use any time during the semester. However, if you have used up your free late days, your grade will be deducted 20% off per late day from your original grade.

No late presentations or reports will be permitted for the final project.

Collaboration Policy

You may discuss assignments with others, but everything handed in must be your own work. All code must be your own - you may not use code from your classmates, the internet, or any other source.

For the final project, you are expected to collaborate within your group, and to look at other projects and publications for inspiration. However, you must acknowledge any ideas that are not your own, and you may not directly re-use others' code.

Notes on Grading

Since several of the assignments for this course do not involve enormous amounts of coding, a significant part of the grade will depend not just on implementing the algorithms, but also on analyzing how well they perform on a variety of inputs. This will be based on the writeups - they should not only describe the algorithm and any implementation notes, but also include the results you get on a variety of test cases and an explanation of why you might be getting those results.

Submitting Your Work

We will use Dropbox to handle submission of code and writeups. Look for the submission link in the description of each assignment - login with your Princeton netID, and submit all applicable files by the deadline. You can resubmit and unsubmit files as needed up until the submission deadline. There is more information about dropbox here.

Please pack the entire assignment, including all code, writeup, images, etc. into one .zip file using the following naming convention:
