PhD Student Workshop on Scientific Writing

The Department of Industrial Engineering and Management arranges a PhD student workshop on scientific writing, together with Dr Binshan Lin from the Louisiana State University in Shreveport, USA on March 19 & 20, 2009. The workshop is now arranged for the 3rd time due to popularity and positive feedback from the students of previous workshops.

This intensive course gives the viewpoint of the Editor in Chief for writing and submitting Journal papers. The attendees are asked to submit a paper, or a draft, they consider publishing. These papers are presented during the workshop, and the authors are given specific instructions and improvement ideas to enable successful publication.

PhD students, and academics, should invest in a systematic study of scientific writing to enable successful publication of the results of their research. The course is aimed for PhD students, but will also be open for post-doc’s and junior faculty members.
