Paper Review By Graduate Students

Spring 2021   Fall 2020   Fall 2019   Spring 2019   Fall 2018   Spring 2018    Fall 2017

   This seminar series intends to have graduate students in the lab introduce one “well-known” research paper and discuss with other lab members. In a seminar, the presenter is going to cover the following four aspects (2W+2H):

  • What this paper is about?
  • Why this paper is well-known and important to you and us?
  • How the authors formulate and solve the problem?
  • How this paper potentially benefits your and others’ research?

The papers that are discussed and presenters are listed below:
