Presentations of Research Papers
A set of recently published articles in conference/workshop proceedings and journals will be posted for students to select. Each student chooses one or two papers from the list for his/her presentation. Students may need to refer to and present extra materials not included the selected papers (e.g., backgound knowledge to help the audience understand the papers better).
Alternatively, students may suggest papers of their own choice. In this case, each student will suggest 2-3 papers and the instructor will select one or two for the presentation.
Note: The talks will be graded based on content (student's understanding of the paper, technical delivery, answers
to the audience's questions) and presentation style (the slides, clarity, pace, interactions with the audience).
- Prepare the slides and the talk (about 30 minutes long) in advance.
- Meet with the instructor one week before the presentation to go over the slides and to ask questions (time and date TBD).
Note: Students' participation during the talks (e.g., asking questions, giving opinions) and handed-in notes count towards the "Class attendance and discussions" grade component.
- Read the listed paper(s) before each presentation.
- Prepare at least two (non-trivial) questions to ask the presenter.
- Take notes of the presentation in terms of content, style and clarity.
- Hand in the questions and
comments on the presentation at the end of the lecture.
