Introduction to virtual communities, overlay networks and social networking. Topics include architectural principles for heterogeneous social networking platforms, trust and reputation as social concepts, agent-based computing, and extraction of trends and patterns from information exchanged between community members.
The project for the course is the design and implementation of a Social Networking applicaton for either the Andriod or iOS platform. In addition to the development of the corresponding user application, your design and implementation must also include server and database components to manage the interaction between users. From a user's perspective, your application must demonstrate as many fundamental concepts as possible of Social Networking applications that were discussed in class, e.g. security. The due date for the project is Dec 9, 2016. As part of your project you will give a presentation and demonstration of your application during the last two classes of the course. You may work in groups of two, but it is expected that a group of two will give twice the effort. A two page project proposal is due Sept 22, 2016. The outline of the proposal is as follows:
- Project Title
- Problem Addressed
- Social Aspects
- Timeline and Milestones
Students must provide their own laptops for in-class use.
Students will be required to use Eclipse, Xcode, MySQL, Tomcat, and Apache HTTP Server during this course.
In class tasks must be completed and demonstrated to the instructor or TA by the end of the next class.NOTE: NO LATE TASKS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
You should take the time to ensure that your assignments are well documented and easy to understand. Assignments that don't meet these standards will be given fewer marks. Guidelines discussed in class define documentation and testing standards. NOTE: NO LATE ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED. cuLearn will be used for assignment submission.
Marks will be posted on-line as soon as assignments have been graded. It is your responsibility to notify the instructor of any inconsistencies at once. Any complaints regarding assignment marks should be brought to the attention of the TA who marked them. This should be done no later than two weeks after the assignment has been first marked. No assignment remarking will be done after this time.
You should take the time to ensure that assignments are neat, legible and easy to understand. Any instructions required by the teaching assistants (for example any assumptions you made about the assignments) should be clearly indicated in a README.TXT file submitted with your assignment. Remember, it is YOUR responsibility to demonstrate that you have understood and completed the assignment. A significant portion of your grade for assignments will be given for the readability of them and for your demonstration that you have completed the assigned tasks.
There will be 4 assignments in this course which will be available on the course web page. All assignments are counted towards the final grade.
Copying of assignments is strictly disallowed. On the first occasion, all students involved will be given a mark of 0. On subsequent occasions, students will be asked to withdraw from the course.

Student Academic Integrity PolicyMedical Certificate The following is a link to the official medical certificate accepted by Carleton University for the deferral of final examinations or assignments in undergraduate courses. To access the form, please go to http://www1.carleton.ca/registrar/forms/
Every student should be familiar with the Carleton University student academic integrity policy. A student found in violation of academic integrity standards may be awarded penalties which range from a reprimand to receiving a grade of F in the course or even being expelled from the program or University. Some examples of offences are: plagiarism and unauthorized co-operation or collaboration. Information on this policy may be found in the Undergraduate Calendar.
As defined by Senate, "plagiarism is presenting, whether intentional or not, the ideas, expression of ideas or work of others as one's own". Such reported offences will be reviewed by the office of the Dean.
Unauthorized Co-operation or Collaboration
Copying of assignments is strictly disallowed. On the first occasion, all students involved will be given a mark of 0. On subsequent occasions, students will be asked to withdraw from the course. Senate policy states that "to ensure fairness and equity in assessment of term work, students shall not co-operate or collaborate in the completion of an academic assignment, in whole or in part, when the instructor has indicated that the assignment is to be completed on an individual basis".
