Recently, IEEE hosted a series of highly successful live authorship workshops in Bangalore, Delhi, and Noida, India which were attended by hundreds of engineering students eager to learn more about the publishing process. The workshops focused on how to publish a technical paper with IEEE. Our keynote speaker, Professor Guarav Sharma, an IEEE fellow, and former associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security and IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, shared his expert experience about the benefits of getting published. Attendees learned valuable information about the IEEE publishing process, including details on everything from basic writing tips to submitting a manuscript. 

IEEE greatly appreciates all the speakers, staff, and student volunteers who were involved in making these workshops a huge success.

Topics covered in the authorship workshops included:

  • Benefits of getting published
  • How to choose where to publish a paper
  • What editors look for in a submission
  • Why editors and reviewers reject papers
  • Aiding discovery with the right title, abstracts, and keywords
