Michalis Faloutsos -- Under construction
Presentations: Feel free to propose to present papers. I will also be choosing people according to various criteria.
Eveybody in the class should read the papers presented for the day.
It should be at the point that anyone in the class could do the presentation based on the slides provide by the initial presenter.
(I am not saying that I will necessarily do this, but it would be fun to try a few times).
Presentations should be done professionally. Consider it that you are
giving a job interview!
They should be 20 minutes in length, and presenters should be ready to ask questions and lead a discussion after that. I would highly recommend presentation software (powerpoint), but transparencies are an option.

You can present the paper with your team if you want. Air-time can be
split approximately in half.
To find the papers: Google the title in quotes. It works almost always. Finding papers is part of research.
NOTE: From a pdf file, you can cut and paste text and pictures (there
is a silly icon that looks like a T or a box with a circle). This way you
can put cool pictures in your work from the original paper. It is not unlikely
to find the presentation on the web either, but I would not want you to
do that. You should rely on the paper only. Note: ps2pdf transforms a *ps
xv in linux can transform images between different types (say giff, jpeg)
Here is the initial list of papers, some peer-to-peer papers may be added.
