Paper Assignment Guidelines

Paper Assignments 1 and 3 will come from the paper that you lead the class discussion on (not the one you present).

Your project evaluation plan will count as Paper 2. Both members of the group will receive the same grade.


Write a 1-2 page summary of the paper you have been assigned.


  • an overview of the problem the authors are solving
  • their approach
  • any advantages/disadvantages you see
  • how they evaluated the work
  • future work that is mentioned and any other future work that you think might arise out of the paper
  • a list of questions and/or comments that you have about the paper

Make sure that you remove as many typos, spelling errors, and grammatical errors as possible before submitting the summary.

Here's a sample summary that I wrote on "The Security of Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks".


  • All assignments must be typed.
  • Use only 12 pt font.
  • Your name must be at the top of each page.
  • All assignments must be completed independently. It is fine, and even encouraged, for you to discuss the paper with classmates.
  • All work must be in your own words. Avoid quoting excessively from the paper, but if you must quote the authors' words, put quotation marks around the quoted material.
  • Assignments must be submitted using Blackboard.


Your papers will be graded on a scale of 0-30 in the following areas:

  • G (grammar/spelling) - quality of English grammar, sentence structure, spelling, proof-reading
  • O (organization) - are paragraphs logically ordered (i.e. does the paper flow)?, are sentences in the paragraphs logically arranged?
  • C (content) - does the paper meet all of the requirements?, are there incorrect statements?
