Since it cannot be said enough, let's say it again: the Impact Factor is easily gamed, is impossible to reproduce, varies wildly between disciplines, is a self-fulfilling prophecy, and is not representative.
Don't use it to assess researchers.
Hello! I'm Tom, an assistant professor in CS. I recently rejoined academia after several years in a research lab. Currently interested in various aspects of security, specifically thinking about problems related to information integrity in all types of systems.
Hello all! I'm Dominik, BSc Computer Science student from Dresden, Germany. I'm currently sitting on my bachelor thesis.
I enjoy network security, distributed systems and botnet monitoring. Currently trying to publish a symposium paper on the latter before I finish up my BSc. New to all things academia 🎓
I'm coming up to two years of using Linux for all my academic work. I think that it was a good decision. 🐧
My paper submitted to EAPS 2018 conference was accepted for a poster presentation. They said in their email, that there will be 120 presentation sessions and 4 poster sessions. Technically, this means my paper belongs to the bottom 3% of all accepted papers. This, of course, may happen. However, the decision was given over an abstract. Only an abstract?! How do you decide whether a paper needs to be presented verbally or as a poster, based on a paragraph?
Why is research called "re-search"?
What does it mean to boost a toot? You make it more visible?
What is the best mastodon client on Android? I am using Tusky right now, but I would like to know whether I am missing something.
Hello all! I am an assistant prof. of computer science interested in data analysis and mining, computational geometry, computer game design and prototyping. I am working in Hacettepe University, Turkey. I wanted to give mastodon a try and hope to find a trusted medium for sharing my thoughts and collaborating with people. So, I really hope that this works :)
