Kansas City, MO

Papers We Love Kansas City (PWL KC) is a community built around reading, discussing and learning more about academic computer science papers and related topics.

Whether it's theory, applications in real world software engineering, or live programming with a novel project, PWL KC is a group for people who are interested in learning more about papers related to the topic of computation. No formal background in computer science or software engineering is required, merely an interest in the topics and a passion to learn.

Once a month, a member of the group will have prepared a ~15-45 minute presentation on a paper they read to the rest of the group. The format and nature of the presentation is largely up to the presenter: live programming, interactive power points, or simple slide show are all valid, non-exhaustive, formats. After the presentation, 5-15 minutes is typically set aside for further discussion and group Q/A with that meeting's presenter.
