Principles of Technical Writing

Speaker:  Indrajit Bhattacharya – Kolkata, India
Topic(s):  Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural language processing


While research students receive intensive and extensive training about the fundamentals of topics relevant for their research, their formal education rarely covers the topic of research communication and writing, which is as crucial as skill for a researcher as the technical ones. No paper gets accepted unless it is communicated well irrespective of the quality of the research. In this talk, I will attempt to cover the principles of paper writing in Computer Science. I will not talk about new research ideas or even the methodology for doing research. Rather, I will talk about the principles behind communicating or writing as a technical paper research that has already been conducted. Specifically, I will start by discussing the goals of research writing. Then I will talk about the structure of a typical research paper and the purpose of individual elements of that structure in research communication.
