Research Methodology Workshop Series
Research Methodology and IEEE AuthorshipLab Workshop
IEEE ComSoc has taken this initiative to propagate and conduct the Research Methodology Workshop extensively to help the youngster to do quality research in his/her field.
Primary focus of this workshop is to improve research quality, create an environment and culture for the research.
The contents are unique. The 2-day workshop will consist of all the components required in the research cycle.
It has been noticed that our quality of research and published papers are not of standards (in many cases). We dont blame only youngster/scholars who are new to this. In a deliberated discussions with some of the senior professional, we have found significant issues with senior people who are experienced do not pay attention to this and may be youngster are not being guided properly. The workshop addresses all the issues and therefore, useful for ALL.
Normally, planned to have 3-4 workshop every year including outside Bangalore.
Organizations/Institutions who want to host the workshop are requested to contact Dr Navin
For Industry/Organizations One day Package is available. However, for academic Institutions, two days are suggested.
Contents are normally:
