All homework must be completed individually.

Each student must read the assigned readings before the lecture and comment on the readings on the discussion web site for the course. Assigned readings can be found in the "Readings" column (one full paper per lecture) and "Notes" column (selected sections in other papers). The discussion site is: http://sourcery.cmcl.cs.cmu.edu:4000/.

Each student also has to post a longer public review once a semester. The review must summarize the online comments made by other students and key points made during the discussion in class. The student(s) assigned to each lecture can be found in the "Reviewer" column in the syllabus. The longer review should be posted within three (working) days after the lecture.

Finally, each student has to give a 10 minute presentation in one of the lectures. The presentation will typically be summarizing one of the optional readings. The student(s) presentation for each lecture are listed in the "Topic" or "Notes" columns in the syllabus. Students should send a draft of their presentation to the instructor by 5pm the day before the lecture for feedback.
