Tentative Schedule

The schedule is also available as an ical file that you can subscribe to.

Lectures and projects can only be accessed by clients with a CMU IP address. CMU students who are off campus can use Cisco AnyConnect VPN to obtain a CMU IP. Most readings require that you have access to ACM or IEEE's digital library. You will automatically have access if you are using a client with a CMU IP.
