DLS Reports

We are fortunate to have a distinguished collection of computer scientists coming to visit this semester. For each visitor, you are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to attend the seminar. If you have a legitimate scheduling conflict for a seminar, then you can substitute attendance by reading a technical paper by the speaker.

For each distinguished lecturer, you are to submit a short (1 to 2 page) typed report. The report must include

If you read a paper instead of attending the seminar, be sure to attach a copy of the paper to your report and indicate the full bibliographic citation of the paper.
