Seminar in Computer Science: Algorithms
MEETING TIME: Wednesdays 16:00 - 18:00
ROOM: T5 (Computer Science Building)
FIRST MEETING: January 17, 2018
GRADING: Quality of writing & presentation
This course is a reading seminar in algorithms and theory of computation. Everyone is welcome to attend. For students, you will get 5 credits if you do the following:
- Participate in the seminar through the semester.
- Pick a paper and (1) write a summary (up to 5 pages) about it and (2) present the paper in one of the meetings.
- Part 1: Introductory talk. The presenter is asked to give a 20-minute overview of the paper. Do not assume anything about the audience's beyond a basic CS background. Try to ignore all technical details and focus on highlighting what's really cool about the paper you read without being overly technical.
- Part 2: Coffee break. We will have a 10-minute break. Anyone who is not interested in technical detail should feel free to leave.
- Part 3: Technical talk. The presenter is asked to give more details on the paper in 30- 60 minutes (including discussions). The audience will be assumed to have sufficient mathematical maturity as well as solid background in algorithms and complexity.
