This is one of the two options for Milestone 6, which is geared towards teams which are more interested in the research side of things.

In this milestone, your team will attempt to write an introduction to a research paper that summarizes the main contributions of a proposed platform, and how it improves on the current state-of-the-art.

You should find a set of ideas from the milestones that you believe will work well together in combination as a platform, It should attempt to summarize the main research contributions of your.

Foundational Ideas vs Features


You should read the introductions of these papers to get a good idea for how HCI research papers that propose new platforms are structured. You will likely be familiar with the mClerk and MobileWorks papers, as they were part of the Milestone 1 readings.
