Students will be divided in groups and will have to prepare a presentation (see schedule for presentation topics).

Each presentation topic will cover several papers (see schedule). The presentation should be coherent, with an introduction, development, and conclusion. It should explain technical details, and synthesize any underlying commonalities or highlight interesting distinctions among the papers. Each student in the team will have 20 minutes to present (15min presentation + 5min questions). So, if a group is composed of three students, the total time will be 60min. Time will be strictly enforced. Every student in class should read the papers before each class.


Student presentations will be graded based on clarity, organization, knowledge, and whether the presentation meets the time constraints. We will also evaluate your ability to keep the class awake and interested on the topic. See How to give a talk (that doesn't put your audience to sleep). The slides need to be sent to both instructors via email one day before the presentation.
