Student Presentations


Each student from the 680 sections needs to pick on of the papers from this list, read it, and give a presentation in class.

Presentation preparation information:

Read the paper carefully, and make sure you understand all the concepts. If there are concepts in the paper that you don't understand, either follow the references in the paper to learn more, or ask the instructor for help. The goal of the presentation is not only NOT to demonstrate the instructor that you understood, but to educate the class about the content of the paper. This means that you should not assume people know what you are talking about. Use as many illustrations as possible.

Your presentation should be between 10 to 15 minutes long, and will be followed by a short Q/A. Students of the online section will prepare their presentations as a PowerPoint/Keynote presentation with audio, or as a YouTube video that will be sent to the instructor to be played in class. Since preparing the presentation at home allows you to be more concise when talking, online students presentations should be shorter: between 8 - 10 minutes long.
