UM EECS589: Fall 2016 Syllabus and Reading List

UM EECS 589: Fall 2016
Syllabus and Reading List

Plain Page for Printing

Note: some of the links to papers below can only be accessed from ACM/IEEE/ScienceDirect subscriber hosts. I've linked them through UM library proxy, for which you need your UM account.

You are not required to read nor review the optional papers listed below.

If this is the first time you read academic research paper, you may find Hanson's Efficient Reading of Papers in Science and Technology useful.

I assume that you have taken an undergraduate networking course that covers material similar to what I cover in EECS 489. I list some background papers in the EECS 489 syllabus page that you may want to review as necessary.
