Wed, Jan 19 @ 9:50am - Paper Schedule Change

We've had a couple of new students join the class this week, so my latest plan for scheduling papers needs to be adjusted a bit.

We have an odd number of PhD students, so one of you can either make a 2nd presentation on your own or talk an MS student into presenting with you. The incentive for the MS student is that it gives them a 2nd presentation grade to average in.

PhD students - Let me know your 2nd presentation group or if you want to be the solo (or joint w/MS student). The solo presentation will be granted first-come, first-serve. Because of numbers, there can only be 1 solo presenter.

We will keep all 26 papers (including the 2 new ones I added yesterday).

Wed, Jan 19 @ 9:15am - No Office Hours Today

Office hours are cancelled today (and probably tomorrow) due an illness in my family. I am available via email and IM (

Mon, Jan 17 @ 7am - No Office Hours Today
