Aim of course

This course permits first steps in own scientific work on selected topics of computer engineering. Based upon a (typically self-assigned) publications on some suitable topic in this field, a short paper shall be written and presented during the semester. In addition, the course is also an excellent opportunity to get in touch with our research projects and establishes a solid basis for related diploma thesises and dissertations.

Subject of course

Possible topics (selection): Hybrid failure models, partially synchronous system models, self-stabilizing distributed algorithms; real-time scheduling, topology control and routing in dependable wireless networks; diverse limitations of the synchronous design paradigm, metastability and synchronizers, asynchronous design styles, delay models, testing and fault tolerance for asynchronous logic, self-healing circuits. An overview of current computer engineering research topics and potential supervisors at the contributing institutes/working groups is provided in the TI research presentations (http://ti.tuwien.ac.at/teaching/ti-research-presentations).
