Each class will typically cover 1–2 research papers. For each paper, you should send a brief summary to garland+summary@cs.uiuc.edu by 10:00 a.m. on the day that paper is being discussed. Your summary should describe the key points of the paper in 2–3 sentences, and should describe the biggest question you have about the paper.
