EECS702: Topics in Computer Systems - Future Internet (Spring 2008)
The Internet has been initially used for information exchange and browsing.
Currently, the Internet is being used for much more (e.g., banking, shopping,
trading, entertainment, politics) and one cannot live without it these days.
However, the Internet has many problems with important issues such as quality
of service (QoS) and security. Recently, researchers have been working on
redesigning the Internet, which is now being referred to as the Future Internet.
There are mainly two approaches: evolutionary and revolutionary (or clean slate).
In this course, we review the current Internet and investigate its problems.
We will also examine the two approaches for designing the Future Internet.
We will focus on the manageability aspect of the Future Internet.
We will then discuss and come up with possible areas or methods for overcoming
the existing problems for the Future Internet.
Tue. & Thu. 13:15-14:30 (PIRL-222)
A course on computer or telecommunication networks is required.
A course on network management is recommended.
There will not be a textbook for this course.
Lecture materials and research papers will be used for the course.

- Evaluation on each student will be done based on the following:
- Assignments - 40%
- Term Project - 50%
- Class Participation - 10%
- Note: the above evaluation scheme may change slightly during the course.
- There will be a major term project (worth 50% of the final mark).
- There will be a few assignments (worth 40% of the final mark).
- Note: the above assignment schedule may change slightly during the course.
- Late assignments may be handed in, but there will be
a penalty of 20% of the mark for assignments turned in less than one day
late, and an additional penalty of 10% for each day thereafter.
- Cheating Policy -- Cheating will not be tolerated in this course.
Students are encouraged discuss things related to courses and assignments
but the materials handed in must be his/her own. The maximum penalty for
the first offense is for the assignment in question. For
subsequent offenses may result in an automatic failure of the course
and possibly other academic punishments.
Students are strongly encouraged to attend all lectures and to participate
in discussions during lectures. 10% of the final mark is assigned for good
and active class participation.
