题目: The Secret to Research Breakthroughs: Teaching Yourself by Reading and Writing
报告人: Md Zakirul Alam Bhuiyan博士，美国福德汉姆大学（Fordham University, USA）
Research work can lead to explore unknown, unintended breakthroughs, and overwhelming outcomes, which benefit society and change the world. Most research work involves some sort of extended reading and writing, usually in the form of papers. Papers normally require that a student identifies a broad area of research related to the adviser’s research or to own interest, focuses the topic through some general background reading, identifies a clear research problem, prepares sufficient resources to answer the questions, and present the disputes in a clear and creative manner, with proper citations. That is the philosophy, at least. But how do you go about doing it all? You may have many questions in your mind. In this talk, I will provide some answers. Particularly, I will discuss how to quickly read one paper and then many papers in a certain time and remember the content of the paper. Then, when you are working on an idea, if you feel that you have seen the idea somewhere, but you don’t remember it. How to remember it really? How to lead your reading to a research problem? How do you address the problem? How do you start writing a paper when you have formulated and develop a problem, with well organization, nice presentation, and high quality? What to write first: abstract or technical content? In this talk, I will cover many such questions and share my experience, which I believe will help you greatly in your research.
