How the Paper Writing Process Helps You!

You may think writing a paper is a huge undertaking in order to give a presentation at a conference, however, the paper writing process fulfills several purposes.

  • Organization: Writing the paper helps you organize your thoughts around your presentation. It does that early in the process, not the week (or night) before your presentation. The paper takes the form of an outline for your actual presentation. By the time of the conference, you should have a great presentation put together! 
  • Editing & Review:  Your paper is reviewed by peers before publication. A team of SIGUCCS volunteers works together to make sure that your paper is put together logically and thoughtfully. This helps make sure that you look your best, both in publication, and later when you present! 
  • Professional Development: The paper you write is an official publication and can be added to your resume. How many IT staff members can boast about their publications?

We believe that the presentations at our conference are some of the best because of this process.
