Master Seminar on Selected Topics in Vehicular Networking

Winter 2011/2012



Contents

This seminar is being offered as part of the "Master Seminar" series, each issue of which treats current topics in the context of active research domains.

Learning Outcome

In the course of the seminar, attendants will refine their skills of quickly familiarizing themselves with new material, extracting relevant details, and presenting their results orally as well as in writing.

Course details

This master course will be held in English and all the course material is available in English.

  • Seminar, 2 SWS, 5 ECTS

Guidelines

Participants are expected to give a 25 minutes talk, followed by 5 minutes of discussion, about their thesis topic. It will be graded for content, presentation, and interaction with the audience. All slides (PDF and source code) used for the talk need to be turned in beforehand. Please take the chance of having your advisor review your slide set, at least one week before giving your talk.

The seminar thesis (PDF and source code) may be turned in up to one week after the talk. Please download and use the CCS thesis LaTeX template. The thesis will be graded for correctness, completeness, and conciseness of both text body and references given, as well as clarity and illustrations. Plagiarism (self or otherwise, however slightly) will result in a failing grade. A rough guideline for page count and number of references are twenty pages of text using ten references. However, the number of pages required for a concise yet complete treatment of all subject matter is highly dependent on your topic.

Evaluation

Many thanks for the critical and helpful evaluation!
