On Research and Writing Research Papers

Did a talk "On Research and Writing Research Papers" for the final year batch of Computer Science & Engineering department of the University of Moratuwa. Slides are below.



Abstract
A firm grasp of scientific method and ability to write clearly and convincingly is a great assert to any professional in sciences. Conducting research and publishing peer reviewed papers train professionals in both scientific method and writing. Moreover, having research papers in your resume is considered a huge plus in both industry and academia. However, conducting research and getting them published requires professionals to approach the problem and present their solutions form a unique angle. The talk will address research in general and writing research papers. Specifically, the talk will cover peer review process, what is a contribution?, and basic composition of a research paper, describing potential pitfalls.

Thanks.

This was a very useful presentation for our batch - especially the topics on 'Figuring out contributions' and 'Types of papers' gave us a good idea about what to write.
