  Abstract



The abstract goes here. The abstract should be selfcontained and: 1. clearly state the problem dealt with
by the thesis 2. give a synthetic description of the proposed solution 3. highlight the sense in which the
proposed solution enhances the state of the art. The abstract must be limited to max. one page with nei-
ther bibliographic references, nor external references of any kind.

1. Introduction
This section introduces the problem and provides its positioning in the framework of the main research
areas of ICT (telecommunications, computer science, electronics).

1.1. The Context
Describe here the context within which the thesis must be positioned.

1.2. The Problem
Here goes a short description of the problem.

1.3. The Solution
Here goes a short description of the solution.

1.4. Innovative Aspects
Here goes a short description of how the thesis improves the state of the art.

1.5. Structure of the Thesis
Here goes a short description of the structure of the thesis, possibly section by section.

Chapter 2


2. State of the Art

Describe here the state of the art of the research pertaining to this thesis.

This part should contain all the relevant publications in the area with the corresponding citations.
The cited works should be briefly described critically assessed.
[Alternatively the critical reviews could be left to the later chapter “Related work”; this approach could be
more suitable for those cases where the results of the thesis – described in chapter 4 – are to be compared
in detail with results from other researchers]

4. The Proposed Approach (can be divided into several chapters)

One or more chapters should be devoted to the description of the proposed approach.

5. Experimental Results

(If there is experimental work)
An experimental results chapter may be necessary in order to demonstrate the value of the thesis
work.

Chapter 6


6. Related Work

One or more chapters should be devoted to a detailed analysis of the related work. The contents of this
sections differ from those of the state of the art because analysis is more detailed here. This chapter must
explicitly refer to the contents of the previous chapters (in particular those describing the proposed solu-
tion).

7. Conclusions

Conclusions should summarize the problem, the solution and its main innovative features, outlining future
work on the topic or application scenarios of the proposed scheme.

Appendix A


Sample Appendix

Sample appendix.

(zero or more appendixes)

The appendix should be used to maintain a record of work that was related and strictly connected to the
thesis work, but that could be left out from the thesis as a scientific publication.
For example:
     source code of programs;
     laboratory setup and tests configurations;
     measurements.

This information could be published in the form of a dept. tech report or a laboratory internal publication
instead of an appendix; these publications should then be cited within the thesis.
