Calendar Description

The student will undertake an individual research project related to Mobile Computing under the direction of a faculty member.

Course Objectives

In this particular offering of CS 890EG, students will be expected to conduct a detailed survey of the mobile computing literature, focusing on a specific topic that is relevant to their thesis research. The reading will be largely self-directed. However, there is an expectation that the students will find and read 2 – 4 papers per week, and will be able to develop a classification scheme that will guide the development of the survey paper. A draft of the survey paper will be due on Feb 15, with the final paper due on Apr 15. A presentation will be given in the CS 490CX (Mobile Computing) class on Apr 9.


The final grade in the course will be determined as follows:

Draft Survey Paper: Feb 15 30%
Final Survey Paper: Apr 15 60%
Presentation: Apr 9 10%
Total: 100%


As a directed readings course, there will be no regularly scheduled lectures for this course. However, students are encouraged to attend the lectures of CS 490CX (Mobile Computing), held on T/Th 8:30 – 9:45 AM in CL 410. Furthermore, students are expected to meet with the instructor once per week (during the instructor's office hours) to provide an update on the readings and survey paper progress.
