The kickoff meeting with a detailed introduction will take place on Wednesday, November 22 at 5.30pm in our seminar room (36-438). The project itself is planned to start in the second calendar week of 2018.
This year's project will be about simulating a queuing network and evaluating its performance. Queuing networks are an essential component of our communication and a model close to reality is an important, yet challenging subject.
An important aspect will be the construction of particular modules of which the network will be composed. We plan to implement arrival (memoryless, self-similar) traffic and scheduling properties (FIFO, priority queue) in order to mimic different kinds of networks.
Previous programming knowledge is required (we will use C++). You should also be interested in queuing networks ;-)
It will be a group project. We will decide on the group sizes based on the number of participants.
