Instructions for presenters

You are welcome to present your own work or somebody else's. The most common strategy seems to be to choose a paper that interests you from a recent conference. Many of the papers we discuss come from CCS, NDSS, Oakland, or USENIX Security, but anything related to security that you find exciting is appropriate.

You are responsible for leading the discussion. This may include making sure people stay on topic, or reminding someone to give everyone else a chance to speak. Do not be afraid to do either of these things. If you are giving a practice talk and would not like to be interrupted, please tell everyone this before beginning your talk.

Contact Frank Li (frankli@cs) on any issue on this page or SRG summer 2014 (especially if you are interested in presenting).
