Information Technology Projects, Spring 2007

Project Rankings

Prof. Arthur P. Goldberg

The “Proposals” handouts describes our projects. For each project I list the name of the company, a description of each of its proposed project and the company's location. Please read the descriptions carefully and decide which project(s) you would like to join. By noon, Monday, Jan. 22, please rank your desire to participate on each project.

You can get your rankings to me by email (artg@cs.nyu.edu), or fax (646 349-2950). Feel free to contact me with any questions. This form is at http://www.cs.nyu.edu/artg/itp/Spring2007/ranking.html.

Please also provide a resume and an informal copy of your NYU transcript (you can just type it up, or send a copy from Albert).

I would like to assign 3 to 5 students to each project we staff. I will attempt to maximize the sum over all students of “ranking” points for the matched projects.

Team liaison

Each team needs a team liaison responsible for organizing interaction with the client. The liaison's job includes scheduling initial and final meetings with team, client and Prof. Goldberg, and scheduling the first few meetings between client and team. The liaison will need to contact people via phone calls and email. Since most of our clients speak English and talk fast, the liaison should speak excellent English.

Would you like to be your team's liaison? Yes No
