As research topics change continuously, contact me to know available projects topics for RES380/RES381/RES841/Projet Libre.
I usually give the student a research problem we (=me and my PhDs) haven't studied yet, but we are interested in investigating (the student is also given some instruments to start with).
Such a project is generally useful in assessing whether the problem is indeed worth investigating, and that may become scientific publications some month of PhD work later.
Below, I report some examples contrasting the early student project and the more mature publication:
- A student project on BitTorrent, yielded to D. Rossi, E. Sottile and P. Veglia, Black-box analysis of Internet P2P applications. Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications, Seattle, WA, August 2010.
- A student project on LEDBAT, yielded to G. Carofiglio, L. Muscariello, D. Rossi and C. Testa, A hands-on Assessment of Transport Protocols with Lower than Best Effort Priority. In 35th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN'10), Denver, CO, USA, October 10-14 2010.
- A student project on the interaction of LEDBAT and AQM techniques, show interesting unexpected behavior that is worth investigating further (we're pursuing the collaboration with the student).
