The set of papers included below is a large superset of papers to be considered for the seminar. Thus, this page should be considered as a "kitchen sink" of papers  (i.e., inclusion of a paper on this page does not imply a vote of confidence in its quality/significance). 

The topical classification below is very rough and for many papers may not even be accurate. A smaller subset of the papers (with more accurate classification and reliable URLs) have been identified as candidates for presentation and are included on a separate reading list page. The final set of papers to be presented will be included on the schedule page.
