CS-534: Packet Switch Architecture
Spring 2004
Department of Computer Science

Reading Assignments: per-student papers
Oral Presentations: Friday 4 June, 11-13, C-100

Each student in the class is assigned three related papers and has to orally teach their main ideas (that we haven't seen in class) to the rest of us. Each student has 30 minutes to do that, plus 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

You can use the blackboard (whiteboard), or hand-written transparencies, or machine-printed transparencies, or machine-projected transparencies as teaching aid. Note that machine-generated transparencies are not necessarily better than hand-written transparencies (when you write in a clean, orderly way), and that transparencies are not necessarily better than blackboard (whiteboard), when it comes to better teaching an idea. Either way, you are discouraged from photocopying (or scanning) figures from the paper that you want to present, and then mechanically reciting ("apaggelia"/"papagalia") what the paper says without trying to extract its main idea(s) and teach that (these) to us.... Last but not least, it is a well known fact that it is impossible to fit the entire contents of a paper in a half-hour slot: you need to make a selection of the most important point(s), and only try to teach those to us.

Papers and Schedule:

  • 11:15 - 11:55  -  IP Address Lookup and Flow Classification hardware
