CMPT882: Reading Assignments

Reading assignments are due before the start of each lecture. Compose a brief summary of each assigned paper. Each summary should be similar to a mini paper review, and consist of two parts: Completed paper summaries should be emailed to the instructor. Please include "CMPT882 readings" in the subject line of the email.

A good read on how to be a useful reviewer for conference/journal papers is "The Task of the Referee" by Alan Jay Smith. For those who have never reviewed papers before (and even those who have), I recommend taking a look through it.
