Master Seminar [MS]

Master Seminar on Selected Topics in Wireless Networking

L.079.08006, Summer 2014


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.

In general, the seminar is focused on two major research areas in wireless networking:

    • Vehicular networks - we are mainly interested in information dissemination techniques and protocol design covering both real-time safety applications as well as large-scale traffic information systems.
    • Sensor networks - we investigate ultra low-power wireless communications as well as robust and scalable data collection and management techniques.

Depending on the specific interest (and the number) of the participants, we organize the seminar either in the classic form, i.e., focusing on a set of research papers outlining some of the most recent findings in the general scope of wireless networking, or in a more hands-on fashion allowing the participants to work on a small project, experimenting with bleeding edge prototypes.

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.
