PLSE Reading Group

Winter 2018 — Friday, 3:30pm — CSE 203

Subscribe to the calendar: iCal or Google Calendar.

We’ll be reading and discussing exciting recent papers from the broader Software Engineering and Programming Language community, with a slight bias toward topics folks in UW PLSE are exploring.

Some paper links may point into the ACM Digital Library or the Springer online collection. Using a UW IP address, or the UW libraries off-campus access, should provide access.
