Introduction[ ]

This course will introduce recent advances in network computing. Specifically, it contains four sections: SDN/NFV, Edge Computing, IoT, and Network Big Data. In SDN/NFV, we mainly talk about two topics: Consistent update, traffic engineering and VNF embedding. In Edge Computing, we mainly talk about the topics of deployment and task offloading. In Internet-of-Things, we mainly talk about the topics of low-power protocols, long-range IoT and IoT applications/systems. In Network Big Data, we mainly talk about the topics of wireless sensing and various applications based on smartphone big data.

Requirements (2019)[ ]

Final score = 40% x class presentation+ 60% x exam.

Class presentation[ ]

The class score comes from the class presentations.

Paper selection[ ]

Each student is required to participate in a presentation (15-20min) of a research paper selected from the top conferences/journals in network computing. Each presentation allows up to three presenters. The third presenter will have 10 points fewer than the first two members.

Conference/journal rankings:

  • Class A: SigComm/INFOCOM/MobiCom/ToN/TMC/TPDS/JSAC/TC/SenSys/IWQoS
  • Class B: IPSN/NSDI/ICNP/MobiHoc/MobiSys/other IEEEACM Transactions
  • Class C: SECON/MASS/DCOSS/Posters from Class-A conferences

If you have no idea after gone through the above list, you may select papers from the list.

Exam[ ]

The exam will contain two types of questions: Concept understanding (7 questions) and problem-solving (2 questions). Don't worry if you do not major in computer networks because all questions will be selected from class tests (answers will be discussed in class).

Bonus system[ ]

You have chance to get bonus points before the presentations and the final exam. Here are the ways how you get bonus:

  • Select papers from top venues.

We encourage all students to select papers from the Class-A conferences and journals.

  1. A Class-A paper gets 4 bonus points for presentation.
  2. A Class-B paper gets 2 bonus points for presentation.
  • Select earlier time slots

As most of you have no experience of public presentations, I believe pioneers will take more pressure. As a result, the earlier you do the presentation, more bonus you get. Specifically,

  1. time slots in 5th week get 3 bonus points
  2. time slots in 6th week get 2 bonus points
  3. time slots in 7th week get 1 bonus points
  • Raise questions to presenters

To encourage the discussion of the presentation, each raised question will be given a 2 points bonus. Each student can gain 6 bonus (three questions) points at most.

Slides[ ]

The slides will be sent to all students in class. Note: the questions and answers will not be shared.
