This description is tentative.
Topic should be related to CPS/IoT security.
- Your project may aim to
- Address an open problem that existing work has not solved.
Recall the problems that the papers we read could not solve.
Try to find other open problems through web search.
Develop a new attack on CPS/IoT systems.
Or, develop an analysis tool that aims to find a new attack vector or vulnerabilities.
If your project is well developed, I will support you to turn it into a research paper. Once accepted (in a conference or workshop), expenses required for your travel to the conference (or workshop) and presentation will be supported.
If we both agreed that your research interests and potential are well aligned (with me), we may seek for potential funding sources for your Ph.D. program.
Talk: 5-10 min (but no evaluation).
- Slides: 2 + 5 pages slides.
Slide 1: Title & name.
Slide 2: Your background and interests.
Slides 3-7: Proposal.
Around one minute for each slide.
Upload your slides to the Blackboard before the Sep 23 class meeting (2:30pm CST).
Find your teammate (team size should be 1-2).
Send the list of your team members by Sep 30 (email@example.com).
For a team of two, more achievement is expected than a team of one student.

For a team of two, each member should contribute to 5 min of the presentation.
- Try to answer following questions.
What problems are you going to tackle?
Why does it matter?
Who should care about?
Are there any past research on this problem?
What is your approach then?
How is your approach different from the past research?
What is your plan/timeline, given the course deadline?
How can you demonstrate your approach works as intended?
During presentation, your classmates will evaluate the proposal and plan.
Upload your proposal slides to the Blackboard before the Oct 14 class meeting (2:30pm CST).
Upload your evaluations on other teams to the Blackboard by Oct 18 midnight CST.
