Mobile Computing Course Papers
Course presentations and participation:
This course is based on a collection of journal and conference papers
that describe the history and state of the art in mobile computing.
Students are expected to read papers before class and contribute to
the class discussion as follows. For each paper, a student will be
selected to present the paper. Each paper presentation
should be 25-30 minutes, including discussion. There will be 2 paper
presentations per class. Presentations will be graded based on
apparent understanding of the material in the paper, presentation
style, and entertainment value. All students will be expected to make
paper presentations. To avoid being assigned a paper that you do not
want to present, you should volunteer early for your paper selection.
The project is an opportunity for you to take an active part in
exploring the subject area, as appropriate for an advanced course.
You can choose any project you want, so long as it has something to do
with mobile computing. Projects can range from operating system
support for mobile computing to complex mobile computing
applications on Android or iOS devices. The project should be chosen
so that it clearly extends your knowledge and understanding of some area of
mobile computing. The primary criterion for evaluating your project
will be what you have learned and discovered, not the amount of code
written or the number of pages of the written report. Projects are to
be done in teams of your own choosing with approval of the instructor.
No midterm, final, or "extra credit" work
