The course contains of a theoretical and a practical part.
Theoretical part The theoretical part of the course centres around a set of scientific articles within the area of computer networking. Topics might change slightly from one year to another to meet the ongoing trends within the area.
The following topics are, however, always included: Protocol design Network programming Network simulation and analysis Wireless networking
Other topics might include, but is not limited to: Traffic modelling Delay-tolerant networks Anonymity in the Internet Quality of Service Distributed testbeds
Practical part The practical part consists of labs covering: Network programming Network analysis, simulation or modelling
The theoretical part of the course consists of a number of seminars which are held by teachers, students and guests. All students are expected to present at least once.
The practical part of the course consists of a number of hand-in assignments.
For the theoretical part comprising 8.5 credits, the examination consists of at least one oral presentation, written reviews of scientific texts or other material included in the course, and active participation in group work and seminars.
For the practical part comprising 1.5 credits, the examination consists of one or more written reports, possibly augmented with demonstrations.
