COSC 191 Writing, Presenting, and Evaluating Technical Papers in Computer Science

Students will learn how to write technical papers in computer science, how to present technical papers in a conference-talk setting, and how program committees and journal editors evaluate technical papers. Writing topics include the proper use of technical typesetting software, organization of technical papers, and English usage. Students will write technical papers, produce official course notes, and give oral presentations. Enrollment limited.


Each student must submit a short expository piece to be evaluated by the instructor at the start of the course; only those students meeting a required level of competence will be permitted to take the course for a grade. Students should also have a Computer Science background sufficient to understand research papers.
