Seminar presentation on Valentine’s day: will the hardship be paid off?

Finally earlier today I conducted the final presentation for my seminar subject. My topic was about Performance Evaluation of TCP Congestion Control Mechanisms. I presented the topic with my colleague, Xiangyu (a Chinese guy), and it went quite smoothly. Dr. Dirk Thißen flipped a €2 coin and the result was that I got the second part presentation of my topic. So Xiangyu started the talk initially. The tension was a bit high back then (the audience were several PhD students and fellow master students), but it went just well.

I was asked several questions by Prof. Otto Spaniol surrounding the performance comparison of New Reno and Westwood+ TCP, but I did quite well in answering (not perfect of course).

In my opinion such seminar subject is very helpful for the students to get into a topic. Not only will it teach (force actually 🙂 ) students how to write a seminar paper (correct formatting, citing, referring etc), but also how to present the topic well to the audience (in an academical perspective of course). In addition, since the seminar (in this case Convergent Networks) consisted of several topics, at the presentation day students will also learn much about other topics from others’ presentations.

My compliments to Mr. Alexander Zimmermann who – in his busy days of IEEE Computer Society Press and ACM publications work – still managed to spend times correcting my seminar paper. I’d also like to thank Xiangyu Zhang for being a good partner for accomplishing the tasks.

Finally I hope I’ll pass this seminar subject 😀
