Update regarding the strike
In brief, the strike is about lecturer's payment that has not been updated since 2019.
The demand is not a raise but to update it given inflation
We were asked not to discuss updates during COVID, which of course we complied,
then not to discuss updates when there were sereis of elections and no budget, which of course we complied.
I am sorry that you guys are in the middle, but strikes typically hurt people that are not responsible which are used as leverage in negotiations.
Once the strike is over we will find an optimal way to resume the seminar.

No class tomorrow
Unless some surprises occur during the night, there will be no class tomorrow due to the strike.

Final report guidelines
Here are some guidelines for the final project (remember, it is 30% of your grade).|
Please pick a paper / topic that you did not present
(1) Summarize the paper in your own words - This is supposed to be in high level but *use your own words*. Assume the reader is knoledgable in CS and AI and know the definition of MAPF and nothing more. The summary should be as sewlf-contained as possible. As a rule of thumb,a one-page summary suffacies.
(2) Following the summary, try and pinpoint what are the key takeaways and insights and note on any missing details or interesting extensions. This should be a couple of paragraphs long but shows the difference between repeatng the paper's some "deeper understanding"
(3) Design in detail a project around the paper. This should be roughly one page long snd should include the following points
(-) What are the outcomes (implement the approach is not a very good project)?
(-) What are the expected results?
(-) What tools are required to implement the project? If you are aware of open source implementations that could be used to start working on the project that would be great. You can check out in mapf.info if something exists.
As a sanity check, ask yourself if you would be excited to do this project (is it feasible? challenging? interesting? Is it clear what needs to be done and how?)
Each part will be given 10 points out of the total 30 points the project accounts toward your final grade.

The mini project was graded. All in all - great job.
The grade was distributed according to
(i) the report (10 points). Here all submission got all points.
(ii) code running times (2 points). Here, I took the fastest solution on my machine (<10 sec) and added almost two orders of magnitude (5 min). Any submission that completed all tests within this time received all points.
(iii) correctness (8 points). If results were not identical to the official solution I deduced points (maximal points that were actually deduced was 2).
So final grades range between 16, 18 and 20.
If you did not receive one of these grades, please contact me.

Project submission guideline
I hope you are enjoying your break.
I got questions regarding the requirements for the project submissions so here are clarifications:
You need to submit
(1) A report (detailed below).
(2) Code (including the test files so I won't need to copy them around).
The report should be a PDF document which includes for each task a brief explanaton of your solution.
For the coding parts - explain what you did, which data structure you used (if relevant) and any non-trivial descisions you made.
For the other parts explain yuor approach.
E.g., In 1.5 - detail your constraints and add the solution + solution cost.
In 2.5, add a figure for each case and explain why it is an example.

Next lesson is In person
I hope you are enjoying the time off.
Next lesson (16.4) will be IN PERSON.
We will have our first lecture AND go over the project (tasks 2 and 3).

Students whose ID ends with the following numbers are registered to the course but did NOT put their names in our spreadsheet.
(*) If you plan to attend the seminar, please (i) send me an email and (ii) add your name to the course spreadsheet.
(*) If you do not plan to attend the seminar, please (i) send me an email and (ii) unregister yourself from the course.
I would like to finalize the coure schedule before the holiday begins so please respond ASAP.
If I won't get any response by Wednesday morning, I will assume that you do not wish to participate in the course.

Right now, we have 25 students registered, a few on the waiting list and one week less than I thought (through my mistake).
I would like to make a couple of changes / requests to accomodate as many students as possible:
(1) If you do not plan to attend the course, PLEASE send me an email and unregister ASAP - this is not fair to other students.
(2) Student lectures will start earlier than expected - right after passover break. I added two slots in our spreadsheet. I will not change the mini-project deadline so for the first two speakers, keep in mind that people may not know CBS 100%.
I'll also discuss this when we meet (virtually) on Sunday.

Testing for task (3)
In task (3) it states that you need to test your code on file `exp3_1.txt'.
This file does not exist.
Please test it on `exp2_1.txt'

Clarification regarding course project
For those of you that had trouble with the location of the course project:|
Look at the website:
In the bottom of the page there are two links:
(1) Project text - http://idm-lab.org/project-p/material/handout.pdf
(2) Python code - http://idm-lab.org/project-p/material/code.tar
The first is the project description and the second is the code (with missing parts that you need to fill).
Hope this helps,

Link to course spreadsheet
I know that there was some confusion with the link to the course's spreadsheet.
Below is the full link (not the tinyurl)
Please let me know if there are any problems.
