Summary Structure

Summary per paper should not be less than one A4 page, and should have approximately the following structure: (Each points should be at least 2-3 sentences)
  • Problem: What is the problem being addressed in the paper. Why did authors of the paper decide to consider it? Why is the problem important for a research community?
  • Main Idea: What is the main idea of the authors to address this issue? E.g. how they propose to solve the problem above?
  • Contribution: How does this paper advance the state of the art? What is exactly new and valuable in the paper?
  • Evaluation: Precisely describe the methods used by authors to evaluate their approach and what benchmarks they use. If your task is to summarise tool papers (e.g. authors developed some tool to solve some problem) you should precisely describe the architecture of the tool and the way how they evaluated it. Your summary should show us that you understood what exactly tool does.
  • Pros and Cons: Provide your opinion about what you think is good about the paper and what are the weaknesses.
  • Questions Mention what you did not understand or in general critical questions about the paper you would like to discuss.
  • Suggestions (Not Mandatory) How would you improve the paper
If your task is to summarise 2 papers, you need to make a comparison between them. Possibly, try to identify main advantages/disadvantages of one paper in contrast with another. Try to concentrate on the content of the summary and forget about its size.
