Exercise 2

DUE: Monday, Jan. 22

Note: You should register for the conference. There is no charge for registration, and no obligation to attend the whole thing. You can find more information at the conference website, including online registration, the schedule (pdf format) and the conference program (also pdf), which contains abstracts for the papers. Abstracts are short summaries, intended to help you decide whether you are interested in hearing the paper itself. If you want to attend a session during our class time, there is one available. Note that there are sessions that go from 9:30-11:30, but there are two papers in the session, and you can go for the second one at 10:30 if you wish.
