History of the University
The combined university can trace its origins
back to 1824 when the Manchester Mechanics'
Institute (which later became UMIST) was founded,
with Victoria University being founded as Owens
College in 1851. The new university has the
largest number of full time students of any
university in the UK (35,546), unless the
University of London is counted as a single
university. It also teaches more academic
subjects than any other British University. The
combined university counts over 20 Nobel Prize
winners amongst its former staff and students. It
has traditionally been particularly strong in the
sciences, with the nuclear nature of the atom
being discovered at Manchester, and the world's
first programmable electronic computer coming
into being here. Famous scientists associated
with the university include Niels Bohr, Ernest
Rutherford and Alan Turing. However, the
university has also contributed in many other
fields, and the mathematician Paul Erdos, the
author Anthony Burgess and the philosopher Ludwig
Wittgenstein all attended Manchester.

The School of Electrical and Electronic
Engineering
We are one of the largest schools of this
discipline in the UK, and home to a full range of
activities within the spectrum of electrical and
electronic engineering. In November 2001, the
School received full accreditation for its
undergraduate programmes (with the maximum score
in all of the assessment categories) from the
(then) Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE).
Only a matter of months later, it received a
Grade 5 in the Research Assessment Exercise.
These two external appraisals confirm us as one
of the UK's leading Schools of Electrical and
Electronic Engineering for both teaching and
research. The great breadth and depth of the
research interests of our academic staff ensures
a very high standard of lecture courses and
provides excellent opportunities for challenging
and stimulating projects. Our graduates are
highly sought after by employers. Independent
surveys on employability consistently show our
graduates to be the first choice of employers.

The School of Electrical and Electronic
Engineering Postgraduate Programmes
The School offers a wide range of postgraduate
study opportunities, both full- and part-time,
which lead to the degrees of MSc, MPhil, PhD and
EngD, or to a Diploma. The MSc requires
satisfactory completion of examined lecture
courses and dissertation on a short project. The
MPhil, PhD and EngD are research degrees although
some lecture course material may be included in
the programme. Diploma courses are taught
courses, and are usually a subset of an MSc
programme. DSP is taught as an option module on
the Communications Engineering MSc and the
Electronic Instrumentation Systems MSc, typically
attracting 65 students.

Introduction The Proposal
This proposal concerns the development of a
comprehensive teaching laboratory package for
real-time digital signal processing (DSP),
targeted towards both undergraduate and
postgraduate students. The emphasis will be
placed on the real-time nature of DSP, and to
facilitate this, a suitable Freescale Evaluation
Module (EVM), the MSC711xEVM, will be
employed. The laboratory package will represent
a complete and thorough introduction to the
science of real-time DSP other than the systems
supplied in the package, no other hardware or DSP
software will be required. The rationale will be
to educate the user by minimizing the time
required to install, configure and experiment
with the equipment. The host laboratory need only
supply, for each workstation area, a computer,
function generator, oscilloscope and audio
source/output facilities.
11
The Package
The package will comprise five major components
Suite of example programs, to accompany the
tutorial exercises
Freescale MSC711xEVM, together with the
CodeWarrior Software
Full documentation for getting started and
step-by-step tutorial exercises
Windows-based user interface for the design and
execution of arbitrary complexity DSP routines
Accompanying website, containing both teaching
material and control software
12
Freescale MSC711xEVM
The MSC711xEVM was selected as the target
platform since it is both cost effective and
based on the high-performance StarCore
Architecture. Since the board is supplied with
multiple interfaces including JTAG, parallel
support, serial interface, 16-bit dual channel
codec and Ethernet port, ample scope is provided
for the development and experimentation of DSP
algorithms that exploit these systems.
13
Documentation Introduction
14
Documentation Exercises
The documentation will describe laboratory
exercises, organized in four major
stages
15
Tutorial Programme Suite
Answers to the programming exercises will be
supplied as fully working programs on an
accompanying CD. These programs will be complete,
stand-alone and ready to run modules, in both
source and object code format. Instructions will
be given for their assembly (or compilation),
downloading and execution.
16
Windows-Based User Interface
During the period of the research grant, a
sophisticated and flexible user interface will be
produced. This will allow the student or user of
the EVM to specify a chain of DSP operations by
dragging and connecting appropriate icons within
a design window. Once the design is complete, the
software will generate the associated C code as a
text file, which may then be opened within the
CodeWarrior environment, compiled and downloaded.
In concept, this user interface will not be
unlike other such systems, such as Simulink
however, it will be optimised for the MSC711xEVMs
and will not require MatLab or any other third
party software, other than the CodeWarrior
environment. It will provide a very broad range
of DSP functions, enabling the operator to
quickly evaluate a particular algorithm. As such,
it will be attractive not merely as a teaching
aid, but to professional DSP system designers.
17
Windows-Based User Interface
18
Website
A dedicated website will be created as a specific
accompaniment to the real-time teaching
laboratory. It will include white papers on DSP
theory, algorithms, downloadable working programs
and hardware design, the latter focused on the
StarCore family of processors. Much of the
content, in a different format, has already been
produced by the applicant as part of his book
Foundations of Digital Signal Processing
theory, Algorithms and Hardware Design. In
addition to the teaching material, the website
will include real-time DSP and control software
which will communicate to the EVM via its
Ethernet port. In this manner, the student will
become familiar with internet-based control and
communication systems.
19
Summary
The Real Time DSP teaching Laboratory represents
a complete, highly integrated approach to
practical training in this key discipline. Should
the proposal be funded, the University of
Manchester now plans to be the first to deploy it
within its rapidly expanding undergraduate and
postgraduate DSP teaching programme areas. With
appropriate marketing, the 5-stage package will
be seen as an indispensable aid to the teaching
of DSP in many universities and higher
educational establishments. In addition, it is
anticipated that the Windows-based user
interface will be a highly marketable product in
its own right, attractive to both the educational
and professional development markets.
20
Resources Requested
It is anticipated that this research program will
require 12 man-months to complete, with 100
effort on the part of the researcher. Resources
are therefore requested for the associated
salary. In addition, UK universities now apply
Full Economic Costs (formerly overheads). With
respect to equipment support, resources are
requested to purchase the necessary EVM hardware
and a PC dedicated to the project. Finally,
funding is requested to meet travel and
subsistence costs in relation to presentation of
results at suitable conferences.

abstract paper presentationAbstract is an important part of the writing task or oral presentation because it helps to introduce the topic of the research. A successful abstract provides its readers with a brief overview of the presentation, helps them to understand the further development of the writer’s idea and the relevance of it in order to decide whether to continue reading the whole presentation. Sample abstract for paper presentation should not be longer than two hundred words and has to be clear to the general public or those people who are not familiar with the topic.

As for the recommendations for a sample abstract for the paper presentation, it should contain the following 4 points:

What is more, it is important to omit background information on the topic as well as introductory materials. There should be no explanations of what the paper presentation describes, but only the results of the study. Besides, no references, figures, and bibliographic information are presented in the abstract. The main feature of a successful abstract for paper presentation is avoiding of wordiness and unnecessary information, grammar and spelling mistakes, the weak organization of the essential ideas.
For example, the abstract for presentation on the theme “Negative Effects of Global Warming” would represent the major findings of the study:

Negative effects of global warming on human health, agriculture and environment outweigh the positive sides. As this topic is an important present day issue, it was selected for the presentation. The main purpose of the presentation is to describe the negative effects of global warming and predictions about the further development of the environmental situation and provide the ways to reduce the level of negative impacts. By means of synthesis and analysis, there were established the essential negative impacts of the global warming, such as polar and glacier melting, ocean acidification, sea level rise, greenhouse effect, temperature increase, droughts and extreme weather, water and air pollution, land degradation, extinction of endangered species. The comparative analysis showed that the negative effects of global warming increased for the last few decades. As for the predictions of the development of the environment, scientists state that the number of negative effects will enlarge. Among the negative influences, the idea that traditional crops can extinct is predominant. The change in the migration patterns of fishes and birds has already been determined. Serious weather disturbances are also considered to be the first effect of global warming. Moreover, there is a prediction that some areas can be flooded because the melting of the ocean progresses.
