1) List out the section headings to look at the organization of the paper.

2) Perform Keshav's first pass (see http://blizzard.cs.uwaterloo.ca/keshav/home/Papers/data/07/paper-reading.pdf):

  • Read the title, abstract, introduction, section headings, conclusions, references
  • Answer 5 Cs: category, context, correctness, contributions, clarity

3) Summarize a paragraph from the paper by jotting down the important points. These notes should be as brief as possible.
