Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to

- write a scientific publication
- conduct a literature search for related solutions
- present and defend their results in an oral presentation
- accomplish time management in a small project

Subject 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.

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).

Teaching methods

In an initial personal meeting with the advisor, the actual task and a working title, as well as the cornerstones of the final report, are specified; the required prerequisites are also checked on that occasion. Regular meetings during the work are used for presenting and discussing both progress and encountered problems (please report severe problems immediately, though). Towards the end of the work, a detailed structure of the to be written final report must be negotiated with your advisor. A presentation of the major results in a talk (preferably including a demonstration) usually concludes the course.
