Paper Presentations

Each student will lead 1 discussion on a selected research paper on Cloud Computing (or related topic) during 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.
