Previous Semesters, including legacy reading lists

Standard paper study questions

  1. Write a short (max 5 sentences) summary of the paper.
  2. What is the problem addressed in the paper?
  3. Why is the problem important?
  4. How do the authors address the problem?
  5. How do they evaluate their approach?
  6. What is the punch-line (key cool idea, or “what I got out of this paper”)? This is often different for different people and different from what the authors may have intended.
  7. Make a list of deeper questions that you would like discussed in the meeting.
