2 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 2 Research paper – 2 Components Title, affiliations, authors’ information Abstract Introduction and motivation Related work Your stuff –Explanation of simulation setup, experimental network, etc. and parameters used, performance metrics utilized, etc. –Performance results Conclusions and future work Acknowledgments References
3 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 3 Research paper – 3 Title, affiliations, authors’ information Title of the paper Name of the author(s) Affiliation Email, telephone numbers Corresponding author indication Supporting agency indication
4 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 4 Research paper – 4 Abstract Abstract summarizes the major aspects of the paper One paragraph long with: –Purpose of the paper General description of the area the paper is related to, description of the problem to be investigates, problem with current approaches and current situation –Methods used Your solution, your approach to solve the current problem What and why is novel –Major results –Conclusions Contains no references, acronyms, abbreviations, figures, images Clear and focused
5 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 5 Research paper – 5 Introduction and motivation A story!!! Starts in a general context and describes the scenario or area that the paper is related to The story is progressively narrowed down describing the problems of the current situation, approaches, etc. The story finally describes the problem at hand, i.e., the problem that you are solving in this paper –Problem statement or problem definition Your story must be VERY compelling –Must convince the reader that your area and problem are VERY important otherwise he/she will NOT read your paper further –What is novel about your approach End with a paragraph with the paper organization An expanded, more specific version of the abstract
6 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 6 Research paper – 6 Related work In this part of your paper, you must include briefs descriptions of other researchers’ approaches in solving the problem at hand –Must include clear statement with disadvantages Why this author’s approach does not solve the problem at hand? –You can include a brief statement differentiating you work from the others Why is your approach different? How does your approach solve the problem at hand?
7 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 7 Research paper – 7 Your stuff Here you need to describe your work –Approach taken (methodology) Simulation, analytical, experimental work Tools and devices used –Other approaches to compare yours with –Network topology Traffic sources Link speeds Buffer sizes Etc –Performance metrics Metrics used to evaluate the performance of your approach –To show that your work actually solves the problem and performs better that the others Must have enough detail for interested readers to repeat the experiments and reproduce the results
8 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 8 Research paper – 8 Performance comparison Your results and analysis –Results match others? –Logical results? Use figures and tables Do not repeat in words what anyone can read from the graphs –Provide insights –Explain WHY?
9 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 9 Research paper – 9 Conclusions and further research Conclude your paper –Summary of the topic, the problem, how it was solved, and the main results/conclusions Point out good, interesting and important areas that need to be further researched
10 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 10 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador Research paper – 10 References Use standard reference format Be CONSISTENT!!! –Use the SAME structure in ALL the references
11 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 11 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador Research paper – 11 Acknowledgment Recognize the work of others that directly made contributions Recognize funding agencies that supported your work
12 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 12 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador Research paper – 12 Others The abstract, introduction and motivation and conclusion are the MOST important parts of your paper –If they are not well-written your paper will NEVER be accepted in a good conference –Reviewers first look at these parts and keep on reading ONLY if they are good Check for completeness –Is everything there? Check the organization –Topic and paragraph sentences –All sections? Check for consistency –Ex. Objectives for experiments should match objectives for paper in intro
13 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 13 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador Research paper – 13 Others Check for cohesion –Does every sentence in a paragraph relate to the topic sentence? References to figures –Make sure every figure is discussed in text and the caption is a “bumper sticker” of the take-home point References –Are they in the right place? Check flow and grammar
14 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 14 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador Research paper – 14 Others Redundant publication Fraud –Plagiarism, i.e. copying data, ideas or work by others –Fabrication, i.e. inventing or faking results –Falsification, i.e. manipulating results Two templates are provided –MS word –Latex (I encourage you to use it, specially if you plan on doing research in Networks under my supervision!) It looks awkward the first time you look at it but it is very convenient and solid –Not only for papers, thesis, dissertations, etc.

16 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador 16 Copyright© Dr. Miguel A. Labrador Research paper – 16 Sections and paragraphs Every section has a topic paragraph to summarize main points and provide a roadmap of the details that will follow –Every subsection too! The topic paragraph should be an abstract/summary of the section or subsection –What the main point is –What the layout of the subsections or arguments are Each paragraph must have a topic sentence, which must be the first sentence in the paragraph
