Final Project Report
Due on Tuesday, Dec 20, 2016 at 12:30 pm
The main goal of the project is to involve some creative exploration of a topic related to the course.
The coverage of this report should demonstrate your competence with the content of the project.
Your writing should be clear, engaging, technically sound, and written in an appropriate style for an academic publication.
Your overall report should be at least 4500 words excluding references (about 5-6 pages in IEEE Format).
The paper will be judged on the following criteria:
- Insight: Your paper should be more than just a recapitulation of existing work, or just raw analysis of data.
You should make an effort to provide insight to the reader: for example, what is the data telling us about the networked system?
- Command of relevant course material: Your paper should connect to the main themes of the course,
and your coverage of the related material should demonstrate competence with the content of the project.
- Clarity: You must clearly articulate the problem(s) or question(s) you are addressing;
your methodology and approach; and your insights, solutions, and remaining open questions.
- Rigor and precision: Your paper must be mathematically precise where necessary, and rigorous and logical in its reasoning throughout.
Any methodology used should be justified, and limitations or assumptions should be clarified.
Up to 30% bonus will be added to project reports that are at a quality that can be published at a good conference, workshop or symposium.
