Familiarity with computer networks at graduate level.
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 Computer/Mobile/Social Networks.
One goal of the course is to expose the graduate students to selected advanced topics in networking, including basic concepts in network science and their applications to real-world (computer, mobile and social) networks. 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.
