Course Overview

The purpose of this seminar is to discuss some advanced topics in computer networks. This course is a theory-oriented research seminar (5 ECTS, 2 SWS), held on a weekly base and comprises the following components:

  • Weekly Presentation + Weekly Paper Reading and Discussion 40%
  • Final Presentation 40%
  • Final Report 20%

The material in the seminar is mainly drawn from the research literature in top journals/conferences, like ToN,TMC, TPDS, SIGCOMM, SIGMETRICS, INFOCOM, MOBICOM, MOBIHOC, WWW, CoNEXT.


  • Each participant is required to read the assigned paper before the seminar and prepare the review of the paper, which should include the following parts:
    • Summary of the paper
    • Pros and cons of the paper (your conclusion)
    • NOTE!! Every participant should provide the paper review BEFORE the seminar (23:59 on Wedesday). => the review form is available at [Paper_Review_Form_ATCN_WS201112.doc]
  • During each weekly seminar, one participant is assigned for presenting the paper (each presentation lasts for ~20 minutes) and the list of pros and cons are discussed by all the participants.
  • In the middle of the semester, everyone is requested to prepare:
    • Final report: Essay (5~6 pages, double columns, IEEE format) for your chosen research topic, which contains a comprehensive literature survey + a detailed discussion of some key enabling technologies
    • Final presentation: each presentation lasts for ~20 minutes, plus ~10 minutes Q&A
