The Master's final thesis is a report of the activity performed in the company or research institution. We do not expect your thesis to become a milestone in human knowledge: it ts the report of three-months of practical work and it will be evaluated as such. We do not expect it to have a strong research character: it should rather be a report on the practical application of what you've learned during this year.

The thesis is supposed to tell a full story, starting from a problem, describing its context, examining available solutions if any, and possible tools (sw tools, algorithms, technologies etc.) that might help solving the problem. A comparison among various tools might be useful.
Then there should be a description of the chosen (or devised) solution, possibly with test cases, user acceptance or user evaluation if feasible.
Finally a conclusion summarizes the work done. Bibliographic references are obviously needed (and they must be referrered to in the thesis text).
Some obvious point: the text must be clear. Good grammar and thoughtful writing will make the thesis easier to read.

We expect the thesis length to be of the of 50/60 pages (it might be longer though, but not over 100 pages).
As far as format is concerned, we suggest to usa a format similar to the LNCS (see formatting instructions).
Two copies of the printed thesis in its final version, plus an electronic version (as pdf) should be delivered (i.e. after revision of your advisor) one week before the thesis defense date.

The thesis defense will be  a short presentation of your work (12 minutes plus three minutes for discussion). Although English language is preferred, it is allowed to present the thesis in Italian.

What do you need to be admitted at the thesis discussion?
You must have passed all the exams, have finished your stage work (i.e. your supervisor must say it is ok for you to graduate), you must have written your final report (thesis) which needs to be approved by your supervisor.
Two printed copies of the final report (thesis) and one electronic version must be delivered to the secretary at least ONE WEEK before the session.
An additional exam session will be organized in September for those who still need to pass some exam.

Until when can you discuss your thesis?
You have time until the March, 2008 session. Until then will provide final sessions as reasonably needed. Please note that until you positively finish your Master (or formally renounce to finish it)  you cannot enroll in  other academic studies.

How should you deliver the electronic copy of yout thesis?
You should generate a pdf file an prepare a CD-ROM containing only that file.
You should indicate on the CD cover AND on the surface of the CD disk with indelible pen/ marker the following data:
a) name, surname, matriculation number
b) thesis title
c) advisor’s name
d) the academic year and the date of the thesis presentation
e) the Faculty name and the course name, i.e. "Faculty of Science, Master in Technologies for E-Government"

If there is not enough space, on the surface of the CD disk you should write only the points a,d,e. On the CD cover you should indicate all data.
