Paper discussions are a core component of this course. You are expected to read
papers before lecture, attend lectures, and participate in discussions. Before
every lecture presenting a paper, students are expected to read the paper
closely and understand its significance, including (a) the problem addressed by
the paper, (b) the main contributions of the paper, and (c) how the authors
solve the problem in some technical detail.
I will also send out 2-3 questions at least 24 hours before every paper
presentation. You should send me brief answers---no more than a few sentences
per question---before the lecture. These questions are meant to help you
prepare for the discussion in class, they are not meant to be very difficult or
time-consuming and they will not be graded very thoroughly.
Most research papers focus on a very narrow topic and are written for a very
specific technical audience. It also doesn't help that computer science
researchers are generally not the clearest writers (though there are certainly
exceptions!). These
[notes](https://web.stanford.edu/class/ee384m/Handouts/HowtoReadPaper.pdf) by
Srinivasan Keshav may help you get more out of reading papers.
To help you prepare for the class discussions, I will also send out a few
questions at least 24 hours before every paper presentation. **Before** the
lecture, you should send me brief answers---a short email is fine, no more than
a few sentences per question. These questions are for your benefit---they are
not meant to be very difficult or time-consuming and they will not be graded in
detail.
