Happy new year


Three more lecture logs available in the course site.

The project for the first part of the exam has been assigned (see the Project page in the course site).

We should start discussing seriously about the topics of the presentations for the second part of the exam (in case you choose to do that). There is a page in the course site, but it is no exhaustive. You can contact me directly or propose a topic of your interest (of course linked to the course content).

I will post the project (20% of the final grade) during the Christmas holidays.

Next lectures (tomorrow and Thursday) will be quite practical: download UPPAAL and play with it :-D
