Papers for discussion will be handed out throughout the semester. You
will be responsible for reading the papers, turning in a written
report (at most 1 page), and participating in the in-class
discussion. Your should not only a summarize each paper but also
include your own thoughts about the value of the ideas and concepts in
the paper. The tentative list is below and will be
updated as the semester progresses. A good source for classic papers
in computer architecture is
