https://inet-teaching.mpi-inf.mpg.de/htdn_21/4/Block_Seminar_Information

1) You must activate your video camera during your presentation. In addition, we strongly recommend that you activate your camera during all Q&A sessions to significantly improve interactivity and, in particular, to provide visual feedback to the current speaker.

2) Please remember that your activity (questions, comments, etc.) during the seminar will affect your grade. We expect each student to be virtually present throughout the seminar (on all days) unless they have received an exception from us.

3) During the lunch break of the first day, we will use 15 minutes (i.e. 12:25-12:40 CET) to check your student's IDs - please have them ready.

Please provide us with your preferences for the seminar papers by the end of Friday, 5th November 2021, 23:59.

You can do so by writing the numbers of your five favorite papers (in descending order)
as a comma-separated line accompanied only (i.e., don't add any formal header/greeting or footer/parting parts)
by your name in the subject of the email to inet-teaching@lists.mpi-inf.mpg.de.

For example, the line "4, 10, 8, 27, 16" means that you prefer paper number 4 over paper number 10, and so on.
It also means that you prefer these five papers over all others.
To facilitate the decision process, we will host a kickoff meeting during which we will present short teasers for all papers.

The kickoff meeting will happen this Wednesday, 16:00 CEST.

The zoom link will is available in the table in the Schedule section.

Hot Topics in Data Networks

 

While the Internet has started as a research effort, it has consistently evolved throughout the decades into the largest commercial network. Today, many research efforts focus on understanding the Internet's structural trends, optimizing its packet delivery, and laying the foundations for its future developments. In this seminar, you will receive a closer look at bleeding-edge research published at the top conferences in our domain. Discussing state-of-the-art approaches and recent findings from a broad range of network-related topics with your peers and instructors will provide you with a deep understanding of your assigned topic. Preparing the accompanying research survey and topic presentation will not only strengthen your academic writing but also help you to present your future work in a more accessible and structured way.

Requirements: Participants should have successfully participated in "Data Networks" or an equivalent course.
