Paper Review By Graduate Students

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?
