Dear mentors,

I'm a second year Ph.D student in UNB, Canada and my research focuses on 
multipath video delivery in wireless network. I have three years NS-2 
development experience.
In this week, I went through the related documents of several projects 
I'm interesting, including SCTP, PackMime-HTTP, Tmix and LTE scheduler.  
In the end, I decide to select LTE scheduler to write my proposal.

In recent two months, I'm doing the research project about application 
aware packet scheduler for multipath TCP and SCTP. So, I read lots of 
scheduler algorithms in the transport
layer. After this projects, I will consider the cross-layer scheduler 
algorithm that considers the mac layer parameters. Therefore, LTE 
scheduler project in NS-3 is very close to
what I'm doing now.

Before discussing the detail, I have a question here, in NS-3 idea list, 
it says that we need to implement an existing and well-defined 
FemtoForum MAC Scheduler algorithm.
However, what is the definition of well-defined here? Some algorithms 
published in high level journal? Or algorithms recommended in standard?

Looking forward for your suggestion.

Wth best regards
