Prerequisites for admission to RCSE programme
This seminar trains skills that help to do efficient scientific work. Students learn how to present scientific results at conferences, how to listen to presentations, how to read, write and review papers, how to launch research proposals, and how to organize workshops and conferences.
The life and hard times of a professional researcher shows several characteristic workload patterns. Apart from hunting insights, researchers frequently have to give and listen to talks, read, write and review papers, launch research proposals, or organize workshops and conferences.
Successful research also requires many personal qualifications and skills such as analytical ability, ability to learn, to conceptualise, to communicate, to integrate knowledge, scientific discipline, curiosity, initiative, motivation, and, last but not least, quite a bit of masochism (for details visit phdcomics.com).
This seminar trains skills that help to do efficient scientific work. Course topics are
• writing and reading papers
The course is organized in two parts: a seminar part where we study how to write research papers, review papers, design conference posters, write research proposals, and organize workshops. The second part is practical training, where every student will apply the new knowledge and will write a paper, design a poster, or take part in the organization of a workshop.
The main event will be the Annual RCSE Workshop on Computer and Systems Engineering (WCSE) in January which will be fully organized by the course participants.
