This lecture complements the "Communication Networks Seminar" (263-3900-01L) offered in the Autumn semester. Students can get credits either seminar, but not for both.

AbstractIn this seminar participating students review, present, and discuss (mostly recent) research papers in the area of computer networks.
ObjectiveThe two main goals of this seminar are: 1) learning how to read and review scientific papers; and 2) learning how to present and discuss technical topics with an audience of peers.

Students are required to attend the entire seminar, choose a paper to present from a given list, prepare and give a presentation on that topic, and lead the follow-up discussion. To ensure the talks' quality, each student will be mentored by a teaching assistant. In addition to presenting one paper, every student is also required to submit one (short) review for the two papers presented every week in-class.

The students will be evaluated based on their submitted reviews, their presentation, their leadership in animating the discussion for their own paper, and their participation in the discussions of other papers.
ContentThe seminar will start with one introductory lecture. Starting from the second week, participating students will start reviewing, presenting, and discussing research papers. We'll discuss two papers each week.

The course content will vary from semester to semester. For details, please see: Link
