Paper Reviews

Each individual student (solo, no groups) will be required to write reviews of assigned papers (1-2 pages), addressing the following content:

  • Summary. Briefly summarize the paper and the key contributions using your own words.
  • Strengths and Weaknesses. Discuss the paper strengths and weaknesses. Try to identify limitations of the proposed method that were not mentioned in the paper.
  • Experimental Analysis. Comment on how convincing and comprehensive are the experimental results.
  • Proposed Extensions. Describe ways in which the work could be extended and comment on open research questions.

The reviews should be emailed to the three instructors. You can use up to 3 late days over the course of the semester. Beyond that, your submission will not be accepted.
