In this seminar, students will be exposed to a researcher's bread and butter, i.e., publishing their work at a conference. Apart having chosen a topic, each student will independently research the state-of-the-art in the area and write a paper about it. By the deadline, this paper must be submitted to a conference management system for review. At this point, students change the perspective and become reviewers themselves, giving constructive feedback to the papers of other students. Once a paper is accepted, the students are expected to address the comments from the reviewers and submit a camera-ready version of their paper. As the final step in the publication process, each student then presents his or her paper at the conference at the end of the semester.

Registration and Grading
All students who want to participate in the seminar must register via the Course Management System until October 19th. Your final grade will depend on your seminar paper, the quality of your reviews, and the final presentation. Details on the exact weights of each grade will be announced in the kickoff meeting. For the initial submission, we expect the paper to be in an acceptable state already. A subpar submission may be grounds for failing the course.
