Paper Reviews

We will read somewhere around 20 to 25 papers in the class over the semester (average 1 to 2 papers per class). These will be listed in bold on the course schedule webpage under the Readings column in bold face. Students will write reviews for a subset of these papers (though, students are required to read all papers). Paper reviews are due at 9pm the day before the paper is discussed in class (as listed on the course schedule webpage).

Paper list will be finalized by the second third week of class. There may be minor changes in the schedule depending on the pace of the class. In the meanwhile, you can see last year's paper list to get a sense of what this course covers.

Only the top-12 reviews will count towards your grade, so you have quite some flexibility and leeway. Though not necessary, I would recommend submitting 1 paper review per class.

Submit your paper reviews in this Google form (you will need to sign-in into GoogleApps with your Illinois NetID). More specifics on the form of review are provided on the Google form.
