Automatic CompSci Research Paper Generator

SCIgen is a program that generates random Computer Science research papers, including graphs, figures, and citations. While the content is completely gibberish, this did not stop SCIgen's creators from submitting to and presenting the generator's work at conferences. Conferences with such low submission standards that they accepted the papers.

Those folks did not even bother to take a look at the auto-generated slides before giving their talk, they just went along - absolutely priceless!
