CE 40-693: Advanced Computer NetworksSaturday/Monday 16:30-18:00 PM
Room: CE 202
Office Hours: TBA
Description:Networking technologies have had enormous growth in the past decade, and increasingly our daily lives depends on them. To that end, this course is a continuation of the “Computer Networks” course which is being offered at the undergraduate level. Building on the topics covered there, the aim of this course is to introduce advanced concepts and mechanism in networking and familiarize the student with current day issues in the field. Topics which will be covered to various extends include Resource Management (i.e. End-to-End Congestion Control, Fair Queueing, etc.), Wireless (i.e. Routing in ad-hoc networks, Sensor Networks), Overlays (i.e. Distributed Hash Tables), Measurement, and Security.
Prerequisites: 40-443 Computer Networks or an equivalent course
References: There will also be many research papers used as reference for the course.
Acknowledgment: This course is primarly based on the graduate level Computer Networks course thought by Srinivasan Seshan at CMU.
- Grading policy is as follows. This is tentative.
- There will be no exceptions to the following rules:
- If you turn in your assignment one day late you will loose 25% of the grade, two days will cost you 50% and three days 75% of the grade. No submissions will be accepted after the third day.
- Cell Phones must be turned off when you are in class.
- There will be a zero tolerance policy for cheating/copying HWs. The first time you are caught, you will receive a zero for the task at hand. If you are caught for a second time, you will fail the course.
- Providing your assignment to someone else is considered cheating on your behalf.
- Homework 0: Watch this presentation on scientific ethics made by Dr. Kiarash Bazargan. Other formats available here.
