Some remarks on participation in the GI Research Seminar
There are several aims of this seminar. On the one hand, the scientific fundamentals and methodologies of modeling techniques for computer network simulation should be elaborated and the participants should be sensitized for difficulties of modeling. On the other hand, all participants get to know each other; they can identify common research interests as well as urgent needs for research in special subareas of the seminar topic. This could be a promising base for future cooperations.
All participants should be (primarily young) researchers in Computer Science (preferably networking and distributed systems) or related disciplines working, starting to work, or simply being interested in the seminar's area (PhD students, fresh PhDs; well experienced Diploma/Master students). Topics from the area are assigned to the participants who will prepare a comprehensive overview paper and talk on the selected topics (e.g. "How to model network topologies?" or "How to model user mobility?"). As first starting point for this overview, they will get original papers from the organizers and should browse for further literature, tools, techniques and technology. During the seminar, this work will be presented (with software demonstrations if possible) and discussed.
The official language of the seminar is German for discussions and English for slides and the Seminar Volume.
After the seminar, the papers should be extended by the knowledge gained/elaborated in the seminar and will be reviewed by the organizers, harmonized, and combined into a seminar proceedings. We plan to publish this proceedings as Springer LNCS Tutorial if the paper quality suffices. In order to ease the publication process, we force the papers to be written using LaTeX.
The seminar is intended for upcoming young researchers (final year graduate students, PhD-students) in computer science or closely related disciplines. You should have experience with network simulation and know the basic concepts of event-based simulation. Participants are selected on the basis of a good general scientific qualification and their experience in network simulation.
