If you are a graduate student interested in gaining some
research/publishing experience and contributing
to the SWORD project through an independent study project, possible
topics that would greatly contribute to our work are:
For further information, please contact
- Analyze media server logs, looking at new workload characteristics
as well as similarities and differences
compared with the previously analyzed eTeach and BIBS client workloads.
- Extend the SWORD prototype, for example to augment the performance measurements
or to add another multicast streaming protocol and evaluate the protocol experimentally.
If you are interested in joining the SWORD project as an RA,
the background needed for graduate work on the project is:
cs547/747 (performance modeling), cs635 (optimization), or cs640/740 (computer networks).
Research topics that are currently being addressed by project participants,
and topics that are available to new RAs, are listed
