Program 2 is still due on Thursday before class. Submit what you

vehicles to change lanes.

I've updated the schedule page with papers that we'll be discussing on
Thursday relating to security and privacy.
Wed, Mar 26 @ 12:25 pm - Program 2 FAQ
(I'll keep updating this as I get questions that I can answer.)
Should vehicles start out in one lane or both lanes? Randomly place vehicles in each of the two lanes.

We'll meet on Thursday for 30 minutes to hear Nigel's presentation. Please arrive a little early so that we can get started on time.

Thu, Feb 28 @ 2:15 pm - Mid-Term
The mid-term is open notes. I would recommend that you bring the
assigned papers as well as the lecture slides/notes. Specifically,
there are questions that refer to [McG06], [RAH06], and [WFG+04] along
with other general vehicular networks topics that we've discussed in class.
Wed, Feb 27 @ 4:56 pm - Paper Assigned for Tuesday
Note that I've changed the paper assigned for next Tuesday (3/4). Please check the schedule. This paper describes the actual algorithm used in [ASL07] rather than focusing on the analysis.
Wed, Feb 13 @ 9:45 am - MDDV Assignment
The assignment on the MDDV paper will be given on Thursday and due next Tuesday. Since we will not meet on Tuesday, submit the assignment via Blackboard and put a hard-copy under my office door.
Tue, Feb 12 @ 6:30 pm - Papers on Schedule
I've added references to the papers that I mentioned in class today as
well as those we will discuss on Thursday. Since only [WFG+04] is
assigned for Thursday, you are only responsible for that one, but you
might want to glance at the others.
Fri, Feb 8 @ 10:20 am - Paper Added
I added a link to the paper I mentioned in class yesterday ([SHA05]) that discussed the worst case number of vehicles needing to communicate for the CICAS application in various types of communities.
Wed, Jan 30 @ 11:40 am - NOTICE Slides
I've posted updated versions of the NOTICE slides. If you already
printed the previous set, take a look at the new set because you may
only need to print the later slides.
Tue, Jan 29 @ 6:32 pm - Updates
I've made several updates:
new project topics
new papers (many under aggregation)
link the SWANS user guide under Useful Links (and also in papers)
Khaled's code from today's lecture (Look for X-SWANS under Course
Documents on Blackboard). Remember to think of a great name for
this extension by Wednesday!
Wed, Jan 23 @ 9:30 am - Schedule Change
I'm moving our discussion of NOTICE until next week. On Thursday,
we'll discuss mobility models and simulators. I've posted a set of
slides that covers just the traffic monitoring topic under Jan 22
lecture. These are the same notes that were there previously, just
with the NOTICE slides removed. I will let you know if I change the
NOTICE slides for next week.
Tue, Jan 22 @ 11:08 am - Project Change
I've decided to postpone the due date of the projects until Apr 29.
This will give you more time to choose a topic and to work on the
project. You may still work in groups, but I would prefer you to work
alone. If you plan to extend this work into a MS project, I would
encourage you to work alone on the project.
Thu, Jan 17 @ 2:40 pm - Projects
I've posted a couple of suggested project topics. More may be
added later, but also feel free to propose your own project. Go ahead
and start talking with your classmates about ideas (you can use
Blackboard to send email to the class). Remember that groups must be
chosen next week.
Thu, Jan 17 @ 2:07 pm - Papers
I've posted assigned (and suggested) readings for next week. Note the
new notation on the schedule regarding at what level you should read
the papers. The assigned papers are listed on the course schedule, and both assigned and suggested
papers are listed on the papers page.

Class is cancelled today. I will be in my office during class time
this morning if you have questions (this will be instead of office

today. It's essentially background on wireless networks and network
security. I will add a link on the schedule page to additional notes
that aren't on the slides.

just slide the hardcopy under the door. I'll pick these up on Friday.
