[News] [Schedule] [Course description]
See the updated list of thesis and project proposals. Most of them are very relevant for ADBT students.
Some students asked about previous exams. Here are the exams of June 2003 and June 2004.
To provide access to on-line literature from outside ITU, we have put copies in a password protected directory Intranet. The user name and password is the same as for ITUs intranet (if you don't know this and are following the course, ask us).
The schedule is preliminary. It will be updated during the course. Slide sets marked "2004" are those from the latest edition of the course, and are subject to change.
