We are bringing back the pipelined format from last year, with a few changes. The biggest is that each student will be expected to review several papers throughout the quarter. Here is how each class will be structured:
10 mins Summarization of paper from previous week.
20 mins Summarization of reviews from previous week / class discussion.

10 mins Presentation of problem statement for this week's paper.
25 mins Break into groups and discuss, focusing on evaluation of problem statement (is this a good problem?), and brainstorming how one might go about solving the problem.
15 mins Each group summarizes discussion to whole class.
As in last year's seminar, papers are discussed before they are read (since the papers are to appear in SIGGRAPH 2006, we assume people aren't familiar with them). We hope that this encourages more engaging discussions and creative thinking.

Each student will review two sets of papers during the quarter (dates will be assigned during the first meeting). The goal of reviewing papers is to encourage thinking about the quality (of ideas, writing, etc.) of the papers discussed. Reviews will follow the SIGGRAPH format, and will be discussed the week after the papers are presented.

Note: Remember to read the papers after the presentation.
