Paper Presentations

Each student will lead 2 discussions on research papers on Cloud Computing (or related) topics during the course of the semester.


For the days that you are not presenting a paper (i.e. most days), you have a reduced but still important role: reading the paper in advance and preparing for the class discussion.
