Lecture One


TimeTuesday, September 13th, 2016


LocationRoom 327, Students' Activity Center

TopicHow to write high quality research papers

Main ContentIt is difficult for new master and PhD students to write their own first research paper. High quality papers follow a set of criteria, not only in the contents/format of papers, but also in the process of preparing and writing papers. In the lecture, Prof. Sheng starts from his own experience and lessons learned on publishing the first paper during his PhD study, and then uses a set of “good examples” to explain step by step how to write high quality papers. Key points of this lecture include:


 Why Do We Write Research Papers?

 What is a High Quality Research Paper?

 What is the Process of the Writing?

 What is the Structure of a Research Paper?

 How to Deal with Conferences/Journals?



Lecture Two


TimeWednesday, September 14th, 2016


LocationRoom 618, New Technology Building

Topic: A Service Computing Manifesto: The Next 10 Years


AbstractOver the past 15 years, service computing has been at the center of intense research and development. However, the very unfortunate reality is that service computing has not reached its full potential in the real world applications. A strategic challenge for the whole community is to analyze why this is the case and what needs to be done to change that in order to move service computing to a better future. In this presentation, I will share some recent thoughts from my collaborations with leading experts in the field on defining a 10-year roadmap for service computing research. I will particularly discuss four main research directions and also briefly introduce some related research projects being conducted in my research group.
