In the reading group phase, you will work up background information on your topic based on papers and book chapters we provide.
While we do not require each student of a group to work through all the given background information, you need to acquire a solid understanding of the topic.
The concluding talk is expected to last 40 minutes. Here, you should convey sufficient background information to participate in discussions and follow the individual talks later. Since the provided information greatly exceeds the available time for the talk, selective filtering is required.
After the talk, you should moderate a 30 minute discussion, so you are required to prepare appropriate material. Be creative!
