EE 049060: System Aspects of Computer Networks
Welcome to the course!
- Alex Markuze will present Quic on Nov. 12.
- No lecture on Nov. 5.
- Before Monday, Oct. 30, 23:59: Please email a ranked list of 4 candidate papers to present ("Preferred paper 1: ...; paper 2: ...; paper 3: ...; paper 4: ..."). If relevant: let me know whether you have presentation date preferences (e.g., "I'd rather present late in the semester"). We'll have 2 presentations per student this semester. The slides of all the papers are online, so the only slides to prepare are about background at the start and personal comments at the end (see below for details).
- 25/10: The course is moved to Sundays 12:30 (in Meyer 354) Next course is on 29/10. Shay Vargaftik will give a talk on the dRMT paper.
Paper List (all the papers are available from the Technion):
- All the papers in SIGCOMM’17, except “dRMT”
- The slides of all the papers are there. Also the author websites sometimes contain more info.
- Be aware that papers can look quite different. For instance, some papers are hardware-oriented; some have more math; etc.
- All the papers in NSDI’17, as long as they are related to networking.
The course grade components are:
- 75% presentation (2 presentations per student)
- 25% active participation in class (e.g. criticisms of the presented algorithm, suggestions of improvements, etc.)
- Please include at the start a long background and related work (up to an hour), so that students can easily follow the paper. (Google Scholar can help.).
- Also include at the end several slides with suggestions and criticisms on the paper (important!).
- You have the full two hours if you want, but of course can take less. Just make sure that we don't have to cut your talk at the end.
Attendance is expected unless you need to attend conferences etc. Email if you need to skip more than one meeting in the semester.
