The course teaches students scientific writing, scientific conduct and quality of research. The student develops and answers a new and non-trivial research question in the fields of computer science or interaction & design. The student then conducts the research and writes the paper under teacher's supervision and peer reviewing. The final version of the paper is submitted via a conference system and reviewed by anonymous reviewers. All accepted papers are published in a technical report by the Department of Computing Science and presented by the author at an internal conference. Learning goals include that the student will develop their abilities to: make independent investigations and research; write a scientific article about their work; and present their research orally.
The course is designed as follows. The students have supervision by the teachers on an individual basis and by peer review groups consisting of 4-5 students. The peer review meetings are mandatory. Each student has to read all drafts from the other students in the group and come prepared to the meeting. All students' papers are discussed. The course has 5 deliverables in the form of ongoing/final/revised paper submissions to support the students' progression, and 5 supporting lectures. The course requires the student to work continuously throughout the semester on their paper.
