590N: SE Reading Group

Winter 2019 — Monday, 3:30pm — CSE 203

Subscribe to the calendar: iCal or Google Calendar.

We’ll be reading and discussing exciting recent papers from the software engineering community. Participants should subscribe to the 590n mailing list. Note the list also has many current and former department members interested in software engineering.

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.
