Term Projects

Project ideas

We'll be posting project ideas here as the term progresses. Check back for updates.

You should also check out the references page, in particular online proceedings from the linked conferences, for inspiration.

Another source of ideas for your final project might be Phillip Hallam-Baker's new book, The dotCrime Manifesto. Hallam-Baker has compiled a short list of potential projects related to the book. We encourage you to take a look at this page and consider the suggested projects.

Topics from Previous Years

This list has gotten a bit long over the past few years. For now, take a look at the project pitches from 2010 and a list of projects from 2009 and before.
