The use of cellular telephones in
Post Emergency Location System
January 19th, The plan
I will dedicate 3 to 5 hours per week to the research of
my topic of interest. During this time I will find articles related to the use
of cell phones and other networking devices in emergency situations,
specifically for search and rescue operations. The background information that I
will obtain will allow me to figure out the specific direction of my research.
The plan outline is depicted in the main page by date. Of course this plan is
subject to change.
The material that I will find will be organized in a
table. For each week I will have a table entry as follows:
- The time spent searching for articles,
browsing the internet and different books.
- Time spent reading
- Time spent writing
|Article title, and all the
citation information. I will not make the article available online
due to copyright restrictions but I will have hardcopies handy.
||I will write about the material that I read
during the week. I will summarize the material and after that I will
write my reflections and the ways (if any) in which this information
will fit into my dissertation.
