Research Question A research question is the fundamental core research project, study, or review of literature. It focuses the study determines the methodology and guides all stages of inquiry analysis and reporting.
Consider using the suggested methods:
> Can/Do phenomenon activity using/via development on/with measures/environment ?
> phenomenon ::= specific cloud RESEARCH area
> activity ::= be improved / be enhanced / be measured / be avoided / be reduced/...
> development ::= what you as PHD student will develop
> measures/environment ::= what sort of data YOU will obtain
Can the application makespan for MapReduce applications be improved using a novel round- robin and genetic scheduling algorithms on different cloud software stacks e.g. OpenStack and Eucalyptus ?
Introduction - Should include background information on the subject. This section must include the following:
> provide an overview of your question's context within the realm of cloud computing;
> describe the essential terms and the research question
> Why is it vital to research the chosen topic? Justify the goal of the literature review.
> give a summary of the review's main findings
> Give the exact headers of each section and a summary of the main points to be made in each one of the document's structure.
Literature review(8 Pages)(from 25 papers) - Must compare, contrast, and relate to past work, as well as clearly state the research question(s), describe the work's objectives, and specify the anticipated contributions. This section should include the following information:
> Introduce each part by outlining the main points you’ll be discussing.
> Finish each segment with a brief summary of what you've covered, and then transition to the next section by explaining what you'll be talking about next.
> Ensure that each section heading corresponds to the topics specified in the introduction, as well as the argument points; > show the reviewed sources in a logical order;
> section headers that are descriptive
> Instead of simply reciting' what the articles say, compare and contrast at least two sources in each paragraph. Every paragraph should describe the publications' significance in relation to your particular research issue.
> Ensure that the research question is consistently referred to – why a thing is important in the context of your own question
> Make sure there are no long portions where the sources aren't cited — all comments and analyses should be related to the sources.
Research method and specification(8 Pages) To bring the research project to a completion discuss proposed methodological approach to the research as well as the expected/next research stages. It must include a significant amount of programming. It cannot be simply a literature review.)
This section must include the following:
> give a specification for the techniques and methods of analysis that be used to underpin the implementation.
> provide a comprehensive analysis and design documentation that explains each of the important design decisions and options that must be made Consider using software engineering diagrams such class and object diagrams component diagrams deployment diagrams CRC cards activity diagrams communication diagrams, statecharts, and/or sequence diagrams, to demonstrate the suggested strategy.
> include a project plan outlines the tasks that will be completed during the dissertation (final implementation). A Gantt chart with the related dependencies should be included.
