About Papers We Love Conf
Papers We Love began as a repository of academic computer science papers. It quickly morphed into an international series of monthly meetups. It flowered into a diverse community of computer enthusiasts interested in research as a hobby or applied to their daily work.
Papers We Love Conference is a one day event to cross-pollinate ideas between academic research and industrial practice. We are very excited to be back in St. Louis as part of the Strangeloop Pre-Conf program for the fourth year in a row.
For a history of Papers We Love and why it was founded, Stack Overflow wrote an interview with some of the founders.
