Paper selection

Please select at least 5 options for the paper that you would like to present. Record your choice using the web page to which you got a link via email. You must submit your preferences by Friday, 22 February 2013 at 12:00.

By the end of 22 February 2013, we will assign you a paper, chosen from your preferences, and a slot in one of the Wednesday seminars of the course. Please email the assistants if you have a conflict, e.g. military service, with one of the Wednesdays this semester. Note that the first presentations will take place on 20 March.

If you miss the paper selection phase in the first week, please just talk to an assistant as soon as possible to make sure that you are assigned a paper for presentation (presenting a paper is mandatory for passing the course).

All papers should be accessible from within the ETH network using the links provided. If you have trouble accessing a paper, please email one of the assistants.
