Students will individually review one recent peer-reviewed published paper/article and also thoughtfully discuss the research papers content on the developments and technologies in Cloud Computing. Choose one topic that you are interested in, or discuss with the instructor if you have any questions.The assessment is based on the presentation and report rubrics.
- 30 points for report paper assessed
- 20 points for the slides and presentation
I. Report paper (30 points): The main body of the paper should not exceed 5 pages.

- The cover page includes assignment title on the particular reference, author info. For example,
- Title: Review on (reference title here)
- Author: student information
- Introduce the topic/problem and related background knowledge, review the solution/approach/algorithm/example, and discuss your learning, analyses and conclusions.
- May use additional references while discuss the topic
- Use appropriate references and citations. Refer to the following links: https://pitt.libguides.com/citationhelp/ieee or https://ieee-dataport.org/sites/default/files/analysis/27/IEEE%20Citation%20Guidelines.pdf
- This will not only review the reference, but also be a thoughtful discussion of the research paper content pertaining to cloud computing.
- Paper and article from IEEE Transactions on Computers, and the Communications of the ACM; or other journals or proceedings approved by the instructor.
- Avoid review/survey paper/article.
One example of reference paper/article,
- D. Gonzales, J. M. Kaplan, E. Saltzman, Z. Winkelman and D. Woods, “Cloud-Trust—a Security Assessment Model for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Clouds,” in IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing, vol. 5, no. 3, pp. 523-536, 1 July-Sept. 2017.
This article covers many subjects and expands more. II. Presentation (20 points)
- The presentation will be scheduled at the class time in October.
- The presentation content should align with the report.
- Prepare a 8 minutes presentation, which will be followed by 4 minutes in class Q/A.
- Make sure to rehearse presentation and prepare well so you can clearly communicate the topic and answer questions.
