615 Projects

The 615 final project should involve an investigation that could form the basis of a submission to a conference in the fields of mobile systems, communications or peer-to-peer systems.

I have provided some possible topics below. It's certainly possible to investigate other topics, but you need to clear them with me by Oct 25.

You may work alone or in pairs. Groups working in pairs are expected to undertake broader tasks and to perform more extensive analyses than students working alone. No group may have more than one Ph.D. student.

If you are running an experiment that requires network measurement in the Internet at large, I am a member of the Planet-Lab consortium, which provides access to a few dozen geographically distributed nodes around the globe. Consequently, you can collect network statistics from more than one location in the Internet.
