-  * presenting one paper, + 
-    * Select a term (write your name to the schedule below) before October 13. +Since 2016, the wiki is moved to https://​github.com/​ufal/​NPFL095/​wiki and the mailing list to [[https://groups.google.com/​forum/#​!forum/​npfl095|npfl095@googlegroups.com]]. 
-    * If no paper is assigned ​to the term, suggest ​[[mailto:popel@ufal.mff.cuni.cz|me]] 2--3 papers you would like to present (with pdf links, and your preferences) before October 20. Ideally, make a group of 2--4 students presenting papers on a common topic (starting from basics to more advance papers)+See also [[courses:​rg:​past|an overview ​of past meetings]], [[courses:​rg:​wishlist|an outdated wishlist]] and [[https://​github.com/​ufal/​rg/​wiki|Machine Learning RG (active in 2014)]].
-    * Prepare your presentation and 3--5 quiz questions. At least 3 of the questions should ask for a specific answer, e.g. "write an equation for...",​ "given training set X=([dog,N],[cat,Y]), what is the number..."​ (Not "what do you think about..."​). The first question should be quite easy to answer for those who have read the whole paper. The last question may be a tricky one. Send me the questions two weeks before your presentation. We may discuss the paper and refine the questions. +
-    * One week before the presentation,​ write the questions to a dedicated ​wiki page here. Send a reminder ​(questions and a link to the pdf of the paperto rg@ufal.mff.cuni.cz by Monday 15:45.+
  
-  * active participation in the discussions,​ which is conditioned by reading the papers in advance and attending the meetings, 
-  * sending your answers to me and the presenter by Saturday 23:59 (so the presenter can go through all answers before the presentation and focus more on problematic parts). 
-  * In case of more than three missed meetings or deadlines, additional work (e.g. reports or answers to tricky questions) will be required. 
  
-All questions, reports and presented papers must be in English. The presentations are in English by default, but if all present people agree it may be in Czech.
