The goal of this seminar is on one hand to expose students to fundamental network management techniques and protocols and on the other hand to make them think in a critical manner on their design, requirements, benefits and drawbacks and their deployment. Students will use both their written and oral skills in producing a scientific paper to compare the studied material and presenting their work in the class, respectively.
The seminar is going to be based on a small description of a network management technique or protocol followed by a discussion on the aforementioned aspects. Readings will be given to the students prior to each of the seminars.
Topics to be covered include:
At the end of the class the students will have gained an understanding of network management problems and solutions covering a variety of aspects, such as monitoring and organization. Students will also have enriched their analytic skills by understanding the principles and motivations behind the design and implementation of network management protocols and techniques. Lastly, students will have learned how to study and analyze scientific papers and how to write a scientific paper and present their work to other researchers.
The first lecture will take place on Tuesday, 20.09.2011 at 09:00 in UniFR, PER21, room A403.
Evaluation: Evaluation will be based on the active participation in the discussions in the class combined with written reports regarding the mandatory readings and a presentation at the end of the seminar involving a comparative analysis of studied material.
Time: Tuesday 09.00-11.00 (every 2 weeks) or upon convenience
