Description: This is a seminar on technical writing and preparing publications for peer review. The focus is on conference papers, around 6-10 pages in length. The main topics are: 1) The structure of a conference publication, with guest lectures from the faculty. 2) Good daily writing habits with a group accountability system. 3) Editing techniques and the development a departmental "writing community" with interactive editing sessions. This course will cover a few topics from ENGI 600, but the main focus will be on short computer science conference documents and interactive peer editing. ENGI 600 is still the correct course to take for writing in general, thesis preparation, or journal publications. This course will complement COMP 600, and to develop the same community for writing as this class does for presentations. Repeatable for Credit.
