The goal of this class is to introduce students to real-world research problems. This class will be done in collaboration with external organizations such as government agencies, commercial firms, and (possibly) organizations within UC Davis. Those organizations will propose research problems that the organization wishes to pursue. Each problem has a “sponsor”, or someone in the organization who will mentor the students working on the project. Students see the proposals, form teams, and apply to the sponsor to do the projects. The sponsor then evaluates the teams and picks one to work with. The sponsor and students scope the work to something suitable for the length of time of the class, and then the students conduct the research. We expect the students to meet weekly with the sponsor to discuss progress and ensure the research is on the right track
This class is intended for graduate students who want to carry our research in computer security. Our focus is on research that will be useful to the sponsors and organizations. It is a 2-quarter class (Winter and Spring 2018 Quarters). Please plan for both quarters if at all possible.
There is no textbook for this class.
To access the class web site, go to Canvas (http://canvas.ucdavis.edu) and log in using your campus login and password. Then go to ECS 289M in your schedule. I will post Announcements, assignments, handouts, and grades there, and you must submit assignments there. The alternate web site, http://nob.cs.ucdavis.edu/classes/ecs289m-2016-0102, has all the handouts, assignments, and announcements. However, you cannot submit assignments there, and I will not post grades to it.
You will also receive an account on the Purdue University Research Repository (PURR) at http://purr.purdue.edu. This site contains information and samples from the other universities involved in this course.
Assignments are due at noon Pacific time on the dates indicated on the Syllabus, unless specified otherwise. They are to be submitted to Canvas and, in some cases, also to PURR. See the handout Detailed Course Description and the course syllabus for details.
