An Automatic CS Paper Generator

SCIgen is a program that generates random Computer Science research papers, including graphs, figures, and citations. It uses a hand-written context-free grammar to form all elements of the papers. Our aim here is to maximize amusement, rather than coherence.

The authors of the programme gave talks based on randomly generated papers. (Update: the talks didn’t go very well — I don’t recommend bothering to watch the video.)
