Researchers spend a significant fraction of their time on writing about their work. The tutorial will present a recipe for writing good "research reports", including theses, internal reports, and especially journal papers. The critical elements of each section of the "research report" will be reviewed, and content, organization, and style conventions will be discussed.
About the speakers:
Ray and Edith have collaborated in presenting short scientific writing courses and tutorials for the past two decades, and together wrote the text book “Communicating Science: a practical guide for engineers and physical scientists”. They run at CERN a short course on Scientific Writing (4 half days), highly recommended for STEM graduate students and early stage researchers preparing their doctoral thesis and/or publications in scientific journals.
Coffee/tea after the tutorial will give the opportunity for participants to continue discussions.
