Dear semester-project participants,

This year’s overall theme will be “AUTO

We have made a list of initial sub-themes:

- Autocreation
- Arbitrary
- Authentic
- Autogenous
- Automatic
- Autoregulation
- Autospection
- Autonomous
- Autogenesis
- Autologous
- Autopia
- Auto

What’s next:

1) You can send us suggestions for additional themes until June 24th by email to mediatechnology [AT] leiden edu. We will evaluate the suggestions and publish a final list of sub-themes on June 26th.

2) Afterwards each of you must send an e-mail message to mediatechnology [AT] leiden edu, at latest on June 28th 2017, that contains the following information:
- e-mail subject: “Semester project theme preferences”
- your name,
- the three themes that you prefer to work on, ordered from strongest preference (1) to third-most preference (3),
- optionally the name of one student that you do not prefer not to be teamed-up with.

Here is a simple example to help you:

Tomediatechnology#leiden#edu
SubjectSemester Project theme preferences
  
My name is
: .....
My preferred themes are:
    (
1) .....,
    (
2) .....,
    (
3) ......
I would rather not be teamed-up with: ...... 

3) We will treat all e-mails confidentially.

4) We will make teams of 3 (or 2) students and assign them a theme. Naturally we will attempt where possible to respect your preferences, but you should understand that full compliance is combinatorically not possible. If we did not receive the above e-mail from you before the deadline, we will decide for you.

5) In this forum-thread we will announce the teams and themes. This may take some time (like 10 days), since it is difficult to match preferences.

6) Coaches will be assigned to the groups in September.

Meanwhile, don’t forget to read the Semester Project Manual!

Enjoy the summer and take the time to start exploring your theme!
