# How to read a paper

## So many papers..
* you can not never read them all

## When to read papers?
* special topic
** you grab a single individual paper based on the title and content
* literature/research state-of-the-art
** every paper has some related work
** but you can not possible read it all
** you need to skim it
* state of the art report (STAR) / review paper
** include hundreds of papers and you can not read them all
** STAR are great summaries for a specific research subfield or topic
* paper review
** reviewing is giving feedback about some submitted work
** you decide if the paper is scientifically sound and should be accepted
** 3 reviewers who then together with an editor or PC member decide on the acceptance
** great experience for your resume/CV 

## What is a good paper?
* abstract, figures, conclusion
** abstract is the summary / the overall story
** 
** example 1: dojo
** ABSTRACT
*** first 4 sentences in abstract give background
*** then contribution is mentioned (2 new softwares Mojo and Dojo)
*** evaluation is mentioned as a between-subjects quantitative user study (objective based on scientific hard facts)
**** not in the abstract: 30 people total without any experience, 10 per software to compare the user performance
**** qualitative feedback (subjective) by asking users how they liked it
** TEASER
*** we know a little bit more now and there is some repetition
** FIGURES
*** Fig 2 gives more background and highlights the importance
*** because we want to convince the reviewer about our contribution
*** Fig 3 shows one of the tools: Raveler
*** Fig 4 shows examples of errors and some feature of Dojo
*** Fig 5 shows 3rd tool Mojo
*** Fig 6 shows Dojo: web-based and multi-user
*** Fig 7 shows example of merge workflow
*** Fig 8 shows example of split workflow
*** Fig 9 shows example of adjust workflow
*** Fig 10 shows collaborative view / multi-user
*** Fig 11 shows some example of proofreading in 3D
** CONCLUSION
*** some more repetition about the content of the work
*** some limitations we did not know about yet
*** future ideas

HOW TO READ A PAPER
** 1. read abstract to get outline of the story
*** but you will still have a lot of questions
** 2. look at the images
*** start with the teaser if it exists
*** go figure by figure
** 3. go to the end of the paper and read conclusions
** 4. look at scientific evidence (maybe look at plots first)

** example 2: scalable interactive visualization

# How to write a paper

## Author order
** follows U-shape with first and last author being the most important
** (only in CS theory its different and alphabetical order)

## Overlead LaTeX/Templates
* MICCAI
** each conference and each journal have their templates
** use overleaf templates if exists

## Outline (first step)
* Introduction
* Related Work
* Method
* Evaluation
* Discussion and Results
* Conclusions and Future Work

## Add Figures..

## Bullets

## Paragraphs
