INSTRUCTIONS - PROFESSORS: Please print and review this form. Complete or correct the sections, as applicable, from "Supervisor's Name" to "Ethics, safety, and training". Please sign and date near the bottom ("Supervisor's signature").
INSTRUCTIONS - STUDENTS: You may receive this form by email, or you may download it after it has been posted here. Either way, print and review this form. Complete or correct the sections, from "Student's Name" to "Student's Level", and sign ("Student signature"). Ask your supervisor to sign her/his section near the bottom. Take it to the department* corresponding to the course number in Section A; this may or may not be your own department. (* EXCEPTIONS: For NSCI 396 and COGS 396, please bring it to the Interdisciplinary Programs Adviser in Dawson Hall.) Do not register for a '396' course on Minerva until you receive departmental permission. Have a discussion with your supervisor about time/work expectations, keeping in mind that this is a 3-credit course (roughly, 10 hours per week for 12 weeks). Remember that a '396' course is an elective.
INSTRUCTIONS - DEPARTMENTS: After the unit chair/director/designate approves (or not) this project, please notify student. If approved, please give student permission to register on Minerva, and send a copy of this form (with signatures) to the Office for Undergraduate Research in Science (either fax, or internal mail to Dawson Hall 408-A, or PDF scan + email).

Project title: Requirements Modeling of Concerns in the Slot Machine Domain
Project description (50-100 words suggested): Concern-driven development is an emerging paradigm that is centered on the coordinated reuse of broad concerns throughout the software development process. A concern captures everything that is important to stakeholders in a particular domain (e.g., security, availability...). A concern contains requirements models, design models, and corresponding implementations and comes with model-driven engineering techniques to apply these different models in a structured fashion. This project aims to create the requirements models of several concerns in the slot machine domain to lay the foundation for a repository of concerns that can then be further expanded in the future.
Other project information: This project is co-supervised by Gunter Mussbacher and Jörg Kienzle.
Prerequisite: 1 term completed at McGill + CGPA of 3.0 or higher; or permission of instructor.
Grading scheme (The final report must be worth at least 50% of final grade): The final grade is determined based on a final written report (50%), a presentation of the accomplished work to the current TouchRAM team (10%) and the actual implementation (40%).
Project status: This project is taken; however students may contact the professor to discuss other possible '396' projects this term.
How students can apply / Next steps: Bring a printed copy of this application form and your advising transcript to me during office hours.
Ethics, safety, and training: Supervisors are responsible for the ethics and safety compliance of undergraduate students. This project involves NEITHER animal subjects, nor human subjects, nor biohazardous substances, nor radioactive materials, nor handling chemicals, nor using lasers.
