This 11-session-long workshop is designed to guide advanced Ph.D. students through the process of writing a journal or conference paper based on their individual research.  At the conclusion of this workshop, students should have a paper that is ready for submission to a conference or journal.  Because the workshop will focus on the content, structure, copyright concerns, and process of writing the paper, students will need to possess strong skills in written English.  Topics covered in the workshop include audience awareness, library research strategies, and the individual sections of a conference or journal paper.  Students will be expected to write both during and outside of the workshop and participate in guided peer review sessions of their written work. The focus of the feedback will be on the content and organization of the writing rather than the grammar. This workshop is offered two to three times per year.
