I like the idea of having a fixed two hour time slot for in-depth discussion (whether it be the CIS seminar or the reading group).  I believe many people keep this time slot open because of the CIS seminar so it should be available.  Having three meetings (BUSec, Crypto reading group, and CIS Seminar) would be too much for one week. I am currently reading Daniel's recent paper "Barriers in Cryptography with Weak, Correlated and Leaky Sources" (http://eprint.iacr.org/2012/459.pdf) and would be willing to lead discussion on it Friday.  It has not been accepted to a conference yet, if you are trying to stick to peer-reviewed works.
