Course Description
In this course, we will cover both the classical/fundamental topics in computernetworks and a number of current/recent research topics related to moderncomputer networks. Most of the advanced research topics are relevant toInternet related research topics and they are mostly in Layer 3 and above (wewill not be looking at problems in DLL or in physical layer). Most of theclassical topics will be covered following the Peterson and Davie book. Theresearch topics will be covered by reading/following the research papers (Iwill provide a list of papers with pointers to soft copies).Most of the class will be on Network Layer, Transport Layer and ApplicationLayer issues. We will follow the order in the text book and use relevantresearch papers to cover fundamentals and important details. Toward the endof the semester, we will cover a number of recent and current networkingresearch areas by reading several relevant research papers. The main goal inthis part will be to expose students to several ongoing active research areas innetworking.

Student Conductand Discipline
The University of Texas System and The University of Texas at Dallas have rules andregulations for the orderly and efficient conduct of their business. It is theresponsibility of each student and each student organization to be knowledgeableabout the rules and regulations which govern student conduct and activities. Generalinformation on student conduct and discipline is contained in the UTD publication,
 Ato Z Guide
, which is provided to all registered students each academic year.The University of Texas at Dallas administers student discipline within theprocedures of recognized and established due process. Procedures are defined anddescribed in the
 Rules and Regulations, Board of Regents, The University of TexasSystem, Part 1, Chapter VI, Section 3
, and in Title V, Rules on Student Services and
Activities of the university’s
 Handbook of Operating Procedures
. Copies of theserules and regulations are available to students in the Office of the Dean of Students,where staff members are available to assist students in interpreting the rules andregulations (SU 1.602, 972/883-6391).
 A student at the university neither loses the rights nor escapes the responsibilities of citizenship. He or she is expected to obey federal, state, and local laws as well as the
Regents’ Rules, university regulations, and administrative rules. Students are subject
to discipline for violating the standards of conduct whether such conduct takes placeon or off campus, or whether civil or criminal penalties are also imposed for suchconduct.
The faculty expects from its students a high level of responsibility and academichonesty. Because the value of an academic degree depends upon the absoluteintegrity of the work done by the student for that degree, it is imperative that a studentdemonstrate a high standard of individual honor in his or her scholastic work.Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, statements, acts or omissionsrelated to applications for enrollment or the award of a degree, and/or the submission
as one’s own work or material that is not one’s own. As a general rule, scholastic
dishonesty involves one of the following acts: cheating, plagiarism, collusion and/orfalsifying academic records. Students suspected of academic dishonesty are subjectto disciplinary proceedings.Plagiarism, especially from the web, from portions of papers for other classes, andfrom any other source is una
cceptable and will be dealt with under the university’s
policy on plagiarism (see general catalog for details). This course will use theresources of turnitin.com, which searches the web for possible plagiarism and is over90% effective.
Email Use
The University of Texas at Dallas recognizes the value and efficiency of communication between faculty/staff and students through electronic mail. At thesame time, email raises some issues concerning security and the identity of eachindividual in an email exchange. The university encourages all official student email
correspondence be sent only to a student’s U.T. Dallas email address and that faculty
and staff consider email from students official only if it originates from a UTDstudent account. This allows the university to maintain a high degree of confidence inthe identity of all individual corresponding and the security of the transmittedinformation. UTD furnishes each student with a free email account that is to be usedin all communication with university personnel. The Department of InformationResources at U.T. Dallas provides a method for students to have their U.T. Dallasmail forwarded to other accounts.
 Withdrawal fromClass
The administration of this institution has set deadlines for withdrawal of any college-level courses. These dates and times are published in that semester's course catalog.Administration procedures must be followed. It is the student's responsibility tohandle withdrawal requirements from any class. In other words, I cannot drop orwithdraw any student. You must do the proper paperwork to ensure that you will notreceive a final grade of "F" in a course if you choose not to attend the class once youare enrolled.
Procedures for student grievances are found in Title V, Rules on Student Services and
Activities, of the university’s
 Handbook of Operating Procedures
.In attempting to resolve any student grievance regarding grades, evaluations, or otherfulfillments of academic responsibility, it is the obligation of the student first to makea serious effort to resolve the matter with the instructor, supervisor, administrator, or
committee with whom the grievance originates (hereafter called “the respondent”).
Individual faculty members retain primary responsibility for assigning grades andevaluations. If the matter cannot be resolved at that level, the grievance must be
