- 14.1.: Instructions for signing up posted in the newsgroup and on the web page. Deadline for signing up in Friday Jan 24th
Students sign up by sending an application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before signing up, the student should choose one of the six topic areas listed in this years topic description and choose some more specific topic(s) that (s)he is interested in. The student should also find and read a few articles on the chosen topic.
The deadline for signing up for the course is Friday 24.1 at 12.00 noon.
Note, that due to the limited amount of tutors on this seminar, we can only accept a maximum of 30 students to this seminar. It is therefore in your own interest to justify why you should be taken, since only partially filled or poorly justified applications will be among the first ones to be rejected.You apply for the course by sending an e-mail with the subject
Registration - your student number
In the e-mail should be mentioned:
- Student number
- Contact information (e-mail address and phone number)
- Your major and minor
- Do you allow that your e-mail address is published on the course web page for about one week when the list of opponents is announced (this facilitates informing each student his opponent's contact information)
- Your primary topic area and a preliminary title. Include:
- The topic area (one of the six given areas)
- The preliminary title of you paper and a short (1/2 page) description of the problem setting that you will research.
- A couple of references, where you would start looking for information if you are lucky enough to get this topic. Since the specific topic you will write about still is open, these references can be general, althoug e.g. "www.ietf.org" will not do as a good reference.
- One or two additional topics that you are interested in, in case too many students choose your primary topic area, in which case you necessarily will not be able to write about that subject. You do not need to describe these topics as thoroughly as your primary topic. Naming the topic area and a tentative focus or title is enough.
- Your previous knowledge in this area (prerequisite courses or other knowledge)
- A justification (see below)
The justification explains for the course personnel, why you should be able to take the course this term. How far are you in your studies (how many credits do you have) and why do you need to take this course. You could mention when you plan to start writing your thesis. If you are graduating soon and really need to take this course now, state so in your application.
Those that state that they will graduate soon, should present a list of completed courses from the study registry (a so called "OREK-ote") and a study plan that show how you will complete the missing studies for the course personnel. You can hand over the papers at some later meeting in the course.If you don't write any justification for taking this course, your application will be along the first to be rejected. Unfortunately, there won't be enough tutors for everyone.
The accepted students along with the topics they get to research and their personal tutors will be announced on Tuesday, 28.1. in the newsgroup opinnot.tik.internetworking.
The application e-mails will be acknowledged as the course personnel receive them.
