Bob s Project Guidelines: Writing a Dissertation for a BSc. in Computer Science

Bob s Project Guidelines: Writing a Dissertation for a BSc. in Computer Science

These detailed guidelines attempt to explain the mechanics of writing a third year project dissertation in Computer Science. They serve as a useful starting point for students (and new advisers) in their third or fourth year of study in the Computer Science Department of a UK-based university. Afterall, no one is born knowing how to write a dissertation. Yet, there are certain elements, a commonality, that can be found in virtually all good dissertations. We give our recommendations as to each section a good dissertation consists of as well as what each section contains. These guidelines are generic and can be customized to fit most projects. The guidelines are open and free to use at any university or institution without permission.

Framework of writing process: transforming computer science research into publishable journal articles

Framework of writing process: transforming computer science research into publishable journal articles

The view that proposes writing as a situated act considers writing as a social act that takes place in a particular situation. It focuses on the influence of the writer’s immediate context such as background knowledge, assumptions, expectations and environment on the form of writing that is produced. These elements should be taken into consideration during the teaching and learning of writing. Studies such as ethnographic research in writing which view writing as a situated act aims to discover in detail how writing is considered as a feature of the writer’s local situations. It is a type of research that is conducted to provide a participant or insider awareness of how and why people write, under normal circumstances, over duration of time, without getting in the way of the writing context. The methods that can be used include “detailed, longitudinal, observations of the setting and acts of writing, interviews with participants on their writing and relevant autobiographical issues, recursive analyses of students’ process logs and diaries, questionnaires and close examination of classroom interactions”, analyses of course outlines, materials and outlines, and the subjects written products (Hyland, 2002:31-32).

Because much of the work being created by the gtik applet takes place inside the X server, detecting the applet as the source of system overhead using traditional tools such as top is impossible. A recent study [2] used dTrace to identify the applet on a multi- processor Solaris system. The study used the output of mpstat, a tool for monitoring processor activity, as a starting point for writing a series of dScripts. dScripts provide control and analysis functionality for Solaris’ dTrace kernel tracing mechanism. In all, five ad-hoc dScripts were necessary to trace the suspicious activity reported by mpstat back to gtik. These scripts required not only knowledge of X programming calls, but also implementation knowledge of an X server. Furthermore this solution using dTrace and custom dScripts was only possible because of the clues provided at the onset by mpstat’s cross call report, a feature that is not available on single processor machines.

Usually, a project consists of writing a substantial piece of software, and the mark you are awarded is based both on the software you produce and the dissertation you write. Some projects are aimed at solving a problem that may require a significant amount of programming (e.g. the creation, execution and analysis of experiments) but not the delivery of a single large program. These can involve carrying out some research, or solving a problem in a way which does not result in an end-product derived from some part of the software life-cycle. It is harder to show tangible results in a

Does science need computer science?

Does science need computer science?

WRITE THIS DOWN Having arranged to fly a read / write head over the disk surface, the next challenge is to record data bits permanently (but erasably) on the magnetic medium. Early read / write heads were a toroid of soft magnetic material (typically ferrite) with a small air gap, and a coil of wire around the toroid. The fringing field from the gap magnetises the recording medium on the disk in an orientation depending on the direction of current flow in the head coil. The same coil was used for writing (by passing a cur- rent through to induce a magnetic flux in the toroid) and for reading (by sensing the voltage induced as the coil passed over a recorded bit). These two functions tended to place conflicting demands on the design of the read / write head. To make it possi- ble to write quickly, the write coil needed few turns since its inductance was the lim- iting factor in changing the magnetic flux quickly. Conversely to make a sensitive read head needed many turns, since the sensing of a bit was made by measuring the induced voltage on the head.

Yahoo researchers developed the Yahoo Cloud Services Benchmark (YCSB), a framework for measuring the performance and scalability of database management systems (Cooper et. al, 2010). This benchmark has since been used in many studies to evaluate the performance of multiple technologies such as: (Abramova et. al, 2014), (Tudorica and Bucur, 2015) and (Abubakar et. al, 2014). An independent study by United Software Associates found that MongoDB provides better performance than its main competitors; Couchbase (Couchbase, 2015) and Cassandra (Apache, 2015), achieving better results in all tests using the YCSB by as much as 13x (USA, 2015). However, Mongo has been criticised about how it achieves these benchmarks. For example, when a write is made to Mongo, it is staged and waits to be written to the database to be stored permanently (MongoDB [III], 2015). The problem here is if there is an issue with the writing of the data, the data is lost without notifying the user.

A spoonful of science can make science writing more hedged

Electronic Journal of Science Education ejse.southwestern.edu At the University of Tokyo, a science ESP program is required for all science students entering their first year of undergraduate studies. This program is called Active Learning of English for Science Students (ALESS) and is uniquely characterized by the fact that students are required to complete an experiment of their own design as part of their English writing task. Over a semester, students engage actively in a research that is investigating a problem that they have not studied in their high school science classes. Individually or in small groups, they learn from their instructors different aspects of scientific writing and apply these elements to write a research paper in a typical scientific format. The ALESS faculty includes scientists as well as linguists in order to balance the teaching between the science and language components.

Serious computer games in computer science education

Serious computer games in computer science education

lasts two semesters and has 8 ECTS credit points, which means between 200 and 240 hours of student work. In this case we can talk about an innovative approach, as students are very active and usually invest even more work than formally required. In the polls, which are carried out after the completion of the project, actually all of them are very satisfied with the learning process itself and also with the results. The quality of work is also confirmed by the fact that students repeatedly present their activities in professional and scientific conferences, and that their results were well accepted in the scientific community. From this academic year we offer Computer Games also as a free elective course, which can be chosen by all the students of undergraduate studies at the University of Ljubljana, and students are highly interested in it.

Procedia Computer Science

Procedia Computer Science

In general, IDSs fall into two categories according to the location they put in it, namely i) Network-based Intrusion Detection System (NIDS) and ii) Host-based Intrusion Detection System (HIDS). NIDSs [2] place in another computer or a network device and evaluate network traffic for intrusion detection. In contrast, HIDSs [3] reside inside operating systems and evaluate their behaviours. These IDSs have better system view and so higher detection power than NIDSs; but they will be prone to attacks by rootkits that are in the system. Thus, HIDSs can be suitable option for system protection by isolation and get better resistance to attacks.
