ECE 757 Spring 2017
To improve the liveliness of in-class discussion of papers on the
list, please provide written reviews of papers to be discussed to
each lecture according to the schedule below. Reviews must be
submitted via learn@uw by noon on the date specified below.
Each review will count as much as a quiz. Make sure your written review addresses the following five points, and be prepared to present your points orally during the in-class discussion. For some papers, not each of the five points is relevant; simply state that in your review (for example, a survey paper may not have any original contributions).
In two or three sentences, summarize the content of the paper.
Use your own words; do not simply copy or restate the abstract.
- Original contribution(s)
Identify the original contributions made in the paper, whether
actual or claimed. It is generally a good idea to check at least
some of the references to verify claims of originality.
Identify weaknesses in the paper, including faulty premises,
inadequate or missing references to prior work, factual errors, false
claims, poor experimental method, inadequate or incorrect presentation
and analysis of results, etc.
- Future work
Identify one or more interesting questions left unanswered in the
paper. What are the next one or two experiments that should be performed
to answer these questions? How would you go about constructing these
- Exam question
Write a multiple-choice exam question based on this reading (NOTE: well-thought out questions are more likely to end up on the exam, which means whoever wrote the question gets a freebie!).
Here is the bibliography.
