|Day & Time Class
Meets on Campus:
|Wed 10:00am -12:30 pm|
|Location:||Math 407 is the official location, but after Sept. 6, class will move to the EE conference room in Mudd 1312|
|Credits for Course:||3.0|
|Class Type:||Seminar Style|
|Prerequisites:||A solid networking background: CSEE 4119 or ELEN E6761. Also, a good deal of mathematical/theoretical sophistication and network systems programming (e.g., sockets) is expected.|
Over the past 10 years, networking technology has inundated the
marketplace, with solutions in place for many of the traditional
topics (QoS, congestion control). One of the areas that continues to
challenge the networking research community and generate interesting
researcch problem is the investigation toward increasing the
resilience of network systems. For instance, the following are
current topics of interest:
Structure/Work/Grading: This course will be run seminar-style, and will have two phases:
Your final grade will be a function of your contribution to the class, which is a mix of how well you lead discussion and how much you participate when others lead discussion.
There is no strict breakdown, but an estimate, based on prior gradings of this type of class is paper presentations 20%, tutorial report and presentation 20%, project report and presentation 30%, in-class discussion and participation 30%.
WARNING: This class is really geared toward PhD students who are pursuing research in networking. Hence, it is assumed that the student has the intellectual background and maturity to read technical papers and to embark on a research project.
Students with an insufficient background will likely feel quickly
overwhelmed by the pace of the class, and probably won't get much out
of it. Such students will be encouraged, perhaps even forced, to drop
the class, or to work out some other arrangement with the instructor.
