Phone: 650-2524, 2948 e-mail: email@example.com
Class Format: Seminar and Project. A series of seminars, with topics of current interest in research areas of image processing, will be presented by the professor and guest lecturers. The students will also participate by presenting journal papers as well as their own term projects.
Description: Topics of current interest in image processing. Applications of image analysis, image restoration, image enhancement, multi-dimensional image processing. Group projects.
Objectives: To familiarize the student with current areas of research interest in image processing. Various paper presentations by the professor and students, and seminars by researchers will be used to achieve this goal. The students will become familiar with the literature - journals, magazines, conferences, etc. - in this research area.
Prerequisite: ECE439 or consent of instructor

Ø 2……Image restoration review, Image reconstruction seminar; Image reconstruction, radon transform, backprojections, Fourier-slice theorem. Reading: Umbaugh – Chapter 9, Gonzalez & Woods – pp. 362-75, Homework – Umbaugh book; Chapter 9: Exercises 18-33, Supplementary exercises 1-5. NOTE: You can use your own homework on the Quiz
Ø 3….. Work on homework, project research
Ø 4...... One-hour quiz
Ø 5….. Journal paper/project proposal presentations, project meetings
Ø 6-9….. Project meetings
Ø 10....... Progress presentations by students, project meetings
Ø 11-14.. Seminars, project meetings
Ø 15........ Project presentations
Term Project: The project may be from one of the active research areas here at SIUE:
Or a topic of your choice approved by the professor.
You may choose any project relating to image analysis, enhancement or restoration. You are to perform graduate level research in your area of choice and to build on previous work for your project.
A paper will be written describing the project and discussing what was learned during the project. The final paper will be about 25 to 50 pages, typed, double-spaced (excluding appendices). Include images in the paper! You are to work in groups of two. During the term you are required to submit three evaluations of the work performed by each member in your group, including yourself. These evaluations are as follows:
Ø In addition to handing in a paper copy of the report, email me a soft copy of the Word file. Before you send me the file give it a meaningful name that includes your last name(s) and the project title.
Your final paper will conform to the following format:
Paper Format Outline
General: reports should be typed, double spaced, pages numbered starting with abstract. The number of pages listed above are only guidelines, do what is necessary, but keep it concise. DO NOT put in plastic folder, simply staple in upper left hand corner.
The students will give a presentation of the project during the last week of the semester.
Grading: The project is worth 65% of your grade, broken down as follows:
Suggested Project Process:
Class Attendance Policy: Based on University Class Attendance Policy 1I9: It is the responsibility of students to ascertain the policies of instructors with regard to absence from class, and to make arrangements satisfactory to instructors with regard to missed course work. Failure to attend the first session of a course may result in the student’s place in class being assigned to another student.
Class Policies: If you have a documented disability that requires academic accommodations, please go to Disability Support Services for coordination of your academic accommodations. DSS is located in the Student Success Center, Room 1270; you may contact them to make an appointment by calling (618) 650-3726 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

THE RESEARCH ENGINEER'S NOTEBOOK
NOTE: In ECE 539 you are required to keep a research engineer's notebook which will be reviewed by the professor during group meetings.
INTRODUCTION: The technical notebook is one of the most important tools for any engineering work. This includes: basic research, product development, or engineering design. It is primarily for the researcher's own use, but another person with similar technical background should be able to understand and duplicate any experiment, data, and conclusion, or to prepare a technical report following only the notebook.
There are many reasons to keep an accurate and complete record of your work:
The nature of the work and the purpose of the research will influence the content and format of the notebook.
CONTENT REQUIREMENTS: The notebook must be understandable to a person with a comparable technical background. It must be legible. It must be complete; for example, "We got code from book" is NOT an acceptable entry - what code ?, what page ?, what does it do ?, did you have to recompile it ?, etc.
The notebook must answer the following questions:
General: The typical engineers notebook available in bookstores will be blue, brown or black, is approximately 9" X 12", and has about 100 to 150 pages. The notebook will be bound, never loose-leaf, and the pages should be numbered consecutively, preferably by the printer. For the our purposes you may use spiral notebooks, as long as each page is numbered and each entry is dated.
A neat, organized and complete notebook record is as important as the investigation itself. The notebook is the original record of what was done. It is not a report to be written after completing an investigation. Do not write on scratch paper expecting to transfer it later to the notebook. Use a blue or black non-erasable pen. Errors are not erased, but simply marked through with a single line so that they still can be read - later you may discover that your "error" contains important information.
Leave the first page or two in the notebook blank for a Table of Contents. This is necessary so that your work can easily be referenced. Use only the right-hand, odd-numbered pages for the notebook record. Use the left-hand, even-numbered pages for sketches, rough calculations, and memos to yourself. You may also place diagrams and graphs on the left, opposite corresponding procedures and calculations. Do not leave any blank spaces/pages in the notebook.
Format - Technical Diary
Organization of this format type is left to the engineer. This format is suited to experimental work, design work, and research. The general format and content requirements must be met. Notes, program code, flowcharts, procedures, data, and calculations are blended together logically and chronologically to form a step-by- step diary describing work. Observations and conclusions are entered as they are made, and summarized at the logical end of a section. This format is well suited for research.
