See this list for some ideas on papers to choose for class presentation and discussion. To volunteer for a presentation slot, add it to the table below.

Note: To access ACM papers from off campus, go to the Purdue library page (http://www.lib.purdue.edu) and access the ACM Digital Library. You'll need to log in using your career account and password. You should be able to find the article using the DOI number. (We need to streamline this process!)
