Room: IS 501
(Updated Sep 8)
The goal of the Doctoral Seminar is to familiarize doctoral students with research and critical assessment and enable them to practice skills required for Ph.D. dissertation. This includes understanding and evaluating literature, presenting technical material and gaining experience in selecting topics of interest and doing original technical work on it. This fall, the course will attempt to accomplish this through review of representative state of the art technical papers covering theoretical and practical issues related to various emerging IA issues, so as to familiarize them with emerging IA research challenges. While the key focus will be related to the trust, access control and intrusion/survivability management issues, other topics of interests to students will be accommodated. Some topics of interest include:
The grading scheme will be as follows:
Typically, 3-4 papers will be
assigned for presentation every week. Students not presenting will be
required to review papers (typically one each week) and participate in
discussion. Participation is based on the quality of the questions and
discussions in class.
