Reading group

The LSV reading group takes place biweekly on Fridays in the Aquarium in C7.4. The purpose of the reading group is to discuss literature related to the research interests of our group members. It is open to everyone. Below are the guidelines for participating in the reading group.

  • In order to suggest a paper, send an email to Marius Mosbach and David Adelani.
  • Prepare a few slides (not more than 5) about the paper. This will help structuring the discussion.
  • Every participant is expected to have read the paper that is going to be presented. The purpose of the reading group is to discuss and better understand a paper, not to introduce it.
