Guidelines for writing paper critiques

Each critique should be no more than one page long. Use single-spacing. Less than a page is abolutely OK. The purpose of a critique is not to summarize the paper; rather you should choose a couple of points about the work that you found interesting and talk about them in more depth. Examples of questions that you might address are:

Your critique should be typed (single space) and should list the title of the paper and its authors at the top, along with your name and netid.

Avoid unsupported value judgments, like ``I liked...'' or ``I disagreed with...'' If you make judgments of this sort, explain why you liked or disagreed with the point you describe.

Be sure to distinguish comments about the writing of the paper from comment about the technical content of the work.
