Publish or perish. This is the pressure of most academic researchers, including graduate students. Academic research includes two major activities: A careful and systematic investigation in some field of knowledge, and the proper communication of the findings. Subsequently in this talk I will address two main questions in the pursuit of happiness in academia, “How to do high quality research?” and “How to write acceptable papers?” To perform good research, we need to define a problem, then to find the solution. Defining good problems is the critical first step in research, and arguably the most difficulty step. I will elaborate the concepts between “asking the right problems” and “the right way to ask problems”, and illustrate their relationship. Furthermore, I will address some problem solving techniques, including my own experience of editing The Handbook of Software Reliability Engineering. Finally, I will share my view on paper writing, covering title selection, motivation preparation, statements claiming, self-review process, and lessons learned.
Michael Rung-Tsong Lyu is a Professor and Chairman of Computer Science and Engineering Department at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the University of Iowa, Bellcore, and Bell Laboratories. His research interests include software reliability engineering, distributed systems, fault-tolerant computing, service computing, multimedia information retrieval, and machine learning. He has published 500 refereed journal and conference papers in these areas, which recorded 32000 Google Scholar citations and h-index of 86. His Handbook of Software Reliability Engineering (McGraw-Hill, 1996, 850 pages) has been cited for more than 2800 times. He served as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Reliability, IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE), Journal of Information Science and Engineering, and IEEE Transactions on Services Computing. He is currently on the editorial boards of ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology (TOSEM), IEEE Access, and Software Testing, Verification and Reliability Journal (STVR). He was elected IEEE Fellow (2004), AAAS Fellow (2007), Croucher Senior Research Fellow (2008), IEEE Reliability Society Engineer of the Year (2010), ACM Fellow (2015), and recipient of the Overseas Outstanding Contribution Award from China Computer Federation (2018). Prof. Lyu received his B.Sc. from National Taiwan University, his M.Sc. from University of California, Santa Barbara, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of California, Los Angeles.
