The Paper Reading Seminar


The Paper Reading Seminar meets in Spring each Wednesday from 2:00pm - 3:00pm in SEL 4224. Each week we select a paper which covers system issues, security issues or any other interesting topics from various conferences or journals. The people attend the seminar need to read the paper in advance. At the beginning of the seminar, a person gives a short summary of the paper first, then followed by the discussion including all attendees.
