To get a permit for CIS 530, you will need to sign up through the CIS waitlist system, which will become available around November 19. Registration is not available for CIS 530 during early registration. I will put a link on the course home page once the waitlist becomes available. The course homepage is http://computational-linguistics-class.org.

The course will have weekly required readings.
Grading
The grading for the course will consist of:
  • 60% for weekly homework assignments
  • 15% for quizzes about the readings
  • 25% for the final project
Collaboration Policy
Unless otherwise noted, you are allowed to work in pairs on the homework assignment. Both partners will receive the same grade. The final projects will have larger groups.
Late Day Policy
Each student has five free “late days”. Homeworks can be submitted at most two days late. If you are out of late days, then you will not be able to get credit for subsequent late assignments. One “day” is defined as anytime between 1 second and 24 hours after the homework deadline. The intent of the late day policy it to allow you to take extra time due to unforseen circumstances like illnesses or family emergencies, and for forseeable interruptions like on campus interviewing and religious holidays. You do not need to ask permission to use your late days. No additional late days are granted.
