Weekly discussion based on current topics in the broad systems area. The goal of this effort is to expose all of us to current research and to foster greater communication and cooperation among the different groups doing research in the systems area here at Hopkins. Each student is responsible for reading the papers and participating in the discussion. Furthermore, every week one student will be responsible for creating a short presentation about the paper and leading the discussion with the help of a moderator. Each week's moderator is the previous week's presenter.
