Familiarity with computer networks at graduate level.
A plus: familiarity with Python or Java programming.
This course is intended for PhD or advanced MS students, who are interested in doing research in networking, especially in Network Science with applications to Mobile/Social/Computer Networks.
The first goal is to expose the graduate students to selected advanced topics in networking, with emphasis on methods from network science and applications in the areas of mobile and social networks. We will try to contrast classic with modern approaches on the same topic. In particular, we will cover the following topics:
The second goal is to train the students in carrying out research: being able to identify a problem and carry out research in a timely manner; reviewing related literature and reading paper in a critical way; communicating the output of your research through presentations and technical papers. In this course, students will get familiar with this process (i) by presenting, discussing and reviewing papers in the aforementioned areas and (ii) by doing one research project that will lead to a workshop-quality paper. There will be no exams.
