Everything that we do as researchers is based on what we write. Especially for graduate students and young researchers, it is hard to turn a research project into a successful CHI publication. This struggle continues for postdocs and young professors trying to provide excellent reviews for the CHI community that pinpoint flaws and improvements in research papers. This course provides hands-on advice on how to write papers with clarity, substance, and style and how to structure reviews that are helpful and focused on enhancing someone’s research. It is structured into two 80-minute units with a focus on writing and reviewing respectively.
