As the period for research with my team draws to an end, it is time to focus on a few more tasks with the main one being the final report. Daphne asked each member to review the guidelines and submission requirements and to submit personal materials, comments, summaries, literature reviews, and suggestions for the final report. All team members are very confident in the composition of this paper as we have worked hard and have a learned a lot from the covered topics.
As usual we have all decided to contribute in different ways to the paper. I will be contributing technical summaries of literature to accompany other information. Most of my information will be focused on algorithm search, especially the Virtual Pheromone algorithm due to the fact that we highly considered its implementation into our Swarmathon efforts.
Short term goal: Send team leader report contributions; Submit final report
Long term goals: If this research effort continues in the Fall of the next academic year, the goal is to continue to enhance the code, address problems that occurred often at the Swarmathon competition and to leave the new competition team better code.
Outreach goal: Our goal is expand our efforts to include new schools with more diversity. In addition to that, learn from our first workshop experiences and improve on the agenda goals.
Tomorrow is submission day and I look forward to what we deliver.
