Writing a proper technical paper in English is always a challenge for Chinese students. Good introduction (from an insider who has chaired many conferences and on editorial boards of several journals) to writing and guided practice would help students to quickly gain the writing skills. This talk introduces the basic requirements for proper styles and formats targeted at IEEE or ACM conferences and journals (for Computer Science and Software Engineering, but equally applicable to other engineering disciplines). The recent option of open publications will also be discussed. Most importantly, how to get a paper accepted and published? We will provide some real case studies: reasons for some rejected papers submitted to an IEEE conference will be analyzed based on reviewers’ comments. We will finally list several typical Chinese English phrases and suggest better usages.
