CPSC 641: Performance Issues in High Speed Networks

Professor Carey Williamson

Winter 2018


The purpose of this course is to introduce graduate students to networking research.

The first part of the course (about 60%) provides an introduction to the Internet and the basic methodologies of computer systems performance evaluation, including a detailed discussion of Internet protocols and applications, wired/wireless networking technologies, and networking research paradigms.

The second part of the course (about 40%) delves more deeply into networking research, through the presentation and discussion of recent papers from the networking research literature.

By the end of the course, students should be well-prepared to do high-quality research in networking or closely-related areas.
