We have regular quarterly polls where you pick what you consider the most important research that has come out recently. Before 2012 it was limited to research PAPERS. So it was a MIP (most important paper) poll. This year we're trying a different system where we alternate papers (over the past 6 months) and RECORDED SEMINAR talks (abbreviated RS), again over the past half year--- a MIRS poll in other words. The first quarter 2012 poll happened to be MIRS---it was posted around end of March and concerned a bunch of exceptionally interesting video and audio talks, with slides PDF files to go with them. Because we alternate, the next poll, to be posted around 1 June, will be evaluating the most significant Loop-and-allied research papers that appeared during the past 6 months.
