COURSE PRESENTATIONS
The dates and students assigned for each paper presentation are listed below. For each paper, one student is assigned to present the paper. The presentation should present a technical overview of the paper and argue the merits and flaws of the paper. The other students in the class will then take sides and render judgement on the paper in a manner similar to what is done by a program committee for a technical conference. Each paper presentation should be 25-30 minutes, including discussion. There will be 2 paper presentations per class. All students are required to read the papers before they are presented.

Presentations will be graded based on apparent understanding of the material in the paper, presentation style, and entertainment value. All students will be expected to make paper presentations. To avoid being assigned a paper that you do not want to present, you should volunteer early for your paper selection. If a paper has not yet been assigned two student presenters and you would like to volunteer to present it, just send email to the instructor to sign up.

In creating your presentations, you are free to use any additional material beyond the content of the paper. For instance, you can reference other papers that may discuss similar work. However, the presentation should represent your own viewpoint, and you should clearly cite any other work you use for your presentations. Failure to make proper citations will adversely affect your presentation grade.

The class will be held in an AcIS Electronic Classroom and we strongly encourage you to use the presentation equipment available there. This link describes the facilities available. You may also use other presentation media, but you will be responsible for providing your own A/V equipment.
