This is a "second" advanced course in networking.
We will cover a broad spectrum of topics in networking building on basic knowledge
you already have.
Please do not take this class if you have never had a networking class before.
While we will cover some basic "textbook" topics, the course will be
primarily based on paper readings.
This course is an advanced graduate course and you will be expected to
do a significant amount of readings on your own.
An outline of course topics is available here
We will not follow any particular text but these should serve you well if you need a refresher.

Important Notes About Grading
- I can only give out a grade of I for non-academic reasons.
- If you end up doing poorly in the class please don't ask for "extra work"
to raise your grade. This would not be fair to other students.
- For those registered as P/F. A Pass requires that you earn a"C" or better
and that you submit all work items and take the exam.
The HWs are to be done individually .
You are strongly urged to familiarize yourselves with the
GT Student Honor Code rules.
Specifically, the following is not allowed:
You are encouraged to discuss problems and papers with others as long as this
does not involve copying of code or solutions. Any public material that you
use (open-source software, help from a text, material you find on the web,
material from a paper, substantial help from a friend,
etc...) should be acknowledged explicitly in anything you submit to us.
- Copying, with or without modification, someone else's work when this work
is not meant to be publicly accessible (e.g., a classmate's program or solution).
- Submission of material that is wholly or substantially identical to that
created or published by another person or persons, without adequate credit
notations indicating authorship (plagiarism).
If you have any doubt about whether something is legal or not please do check
with the class Instructor.
