Presentation Instructions

Please send email to Don Porter with your top three preferences for papers to present. Don will aggregate the requests and make the final assignment. Everyone will present once before anyone presents twice. If you have questions, please ask.

Please note that when we write "optional" it means "optional reading for that day". There is no flexibility about which two papers will be presented, with the exception of Lustre, where the presenter will have to be creative about putting together a presentation.

(New!) Presentation format

We are changing the presentation format:

Speaking advice

Mike Dahlin has collected a lot of useful advice for researchers. Check it out! The "good talk" and "bad talk" links might be especially useful.

Don't copy!

If you use your own slides, which is fine, please send them to us afterward. Please do not look at other presentations that you might find on the Web; you may be tempted to copy, lift, or borrow from them, thereby violating the UTCS code of conduct.
