Milano Chapter

What was the last paper within the realm of computing you read and loved? What did it inspire you to build or tinker with? Come share the ideas in an awesome academic/research paper with fellow engineers, programmers, and paper-readers. Lead a session and show off code that you wrote that implements these ideas or just give us the lowdown about the paper. Otherwise, just come, listen, and discuss in a low ego, friendly environment.

We'll be using our chapter's repository for organising our meetups and accepting presentation proposals.

Please read and follow the Code Of Conduct. Please let one of the organisers know if anything makes you uncomfortable.

Chapter Details


We are the first Italian chapter of Papers We Love!

Join a fresh new community of fellow developers, scientists and paper-readers who are excited about computer science and want to talk about it!

Our goal is to share beautiful papers with a wider audience. We especially welcome talks about foundational papers of historical significance, but we do cherish submissions of any kind.

Lead a session and present a paper you love, show off the code you wrote to implement one, tell us about a paper you authored, or just attend and join the conversation.

We are curating this repository with papers presented at PWL Milano and we keep a list of proposal. Open an issue to submit your own!

The main language is Italian, but we welcome English talks!

Siamo il primo capitolo italiano di Papers We Love!

Unisciti a una nuova community di sviluppatori, scienziati e lettori-di-paper che amano le scienze informatiche e vogliono parlarne!

Il nostro obiettivo è condividere pubblicazioni interessanti con un pubblico più ampio. Apprezziamo in particolar modo presentazioni su paper di rilevanza storica, ma accettiamo di buon grado proposte di ogni tipo.

Proponi una sessione e presenta un paper che ami, mostra il codice che hai scritto per implementarlo, raccontaci un paper che hai scritto, o semplicemente vieni a trovarci e partecipa alla discussione.

Curiamo questo repository con paper presentati a PWL Milano, e manteniamo una lista di proposte. Apri una issue per proporre la tua!

Il linguaggio principale è l'italiano, ma anche i talk in inglese sono benvenuti!
