Paper Assignment 2

Assigned: Thurs, Feb 18
Due: Thurs, Mar 4 before 11:59pm

Write a 1-2 page summary of the application paper you have been assigned to present (see presentation guidelines below).


  • 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, but it is not acceptable to discuss answers to the questions.
  • All answers 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.

Application Presentation Guidelines

  • Prepare a 25-30 minute presentation on the paper you have been assigned.
  • The presentation should cover the important points from the paper, including any evaluation that was performed.
  • You may use material you find online, but you must cite anything that is not your own work (including slides, figures, sentences).
  • At least 75% of the material must be your own work!
  • Feel free to include your thoughts, comments, opinions about the paper.
