This paper you have to send to me after 24 hours for synopsis on your project topic.
Write a one-page synopsis on your project topic, including references. In the synopsis, briefly describe what you will be working on as well as motivation for your project topic. Briefly tell me what has been done on that topic and what your contribution will be. What resources will you need to successfully complete the project.
My topic is How to Keep Your Child Safe from Phishing social engineering in malware analisys

Below is the rubric for the paper reviews and presentations.
# Grading Elements for Paper Review Points
1 Paper structure
2 Research Problem, Research question(s)/Hypotheses and methodology
3 Dataset Description and Sampling Techniques
4 Explanation of Results, Analysis and Ground Truth
5 Generalizability of results/models and research contributions
6 Research limitations
7 Related work – what existing work has been done on that topic and what are the gaps motivating or inspiring your work
8 Coherent and clear writing
9 Can the paper be extended? Provide suggestions on future work
Guidelines on Writing a Scientific Paper
Getting your hands wet
Additional project guidelines & requirements
2-Introduction … Ideation :
Think about think about a topic you want to publish about
What research question or your hypothesis you want to address
Can the question be broken down into sub questions to scope your work?
Can sub questions be stated logically to connect findings for your work?
Formulating research questions or hypotheses
Is it a new and interesting area?
interest in scientific writing is determined by findings/facts
Is the research topic new or is there well published body of work?
What is the research gap that your paper will address?
3-Introduction … think as a reviewer :
As you start writing, as wear the hat of a reviewer
Think about the following:
Paper should sufficient new material
Content should concise and well organized
Methods and experiment design should be properly described. Compliment the design with a flow chart.
Results should be presented and explained
Use tables and figures to present the results
Think about the following:
Discussion of the results should address – the so what question
Do not forget ground truth to validate your data
Conclusions supported by the data presented as well as other published work
Figures and tables should be adequate and neatly presented
All references used should cited in the text included in a references list
4-Getting your hands wet … writing
Why should anyone read your paper?
Summary of key findings
What did you or others do
What were the major findings
Relevance and application of your research – use cases
How is the rest of the paper organized
Recent published work vs highly cited work
What have others done in that research area?
What were their key findings?
What makes your work different from theirs?
Methodology and experiment design
How was the data collected and preprocessed?
Use a flow chart and describe the events on data collection
How much data was collected?
How much of that was used?
How are sources for public data acknowledged or cited?
How were the samples for the experiment selected?
Describe your dataset
Use descriptive and inferential statistics
How was the data analyzed to answer the research question(s) or test the hypotheses?
Ground truth – how is the evidence validated?
Results and Discussion
This constitutes the bulk of your paper
What were the results?
Results have to presented – figures, tables, graphs, charts etc
Look out for outliers and anomalies and discuss
What do the results mean?
Does interpretation of some results agree with existing related work?
Discuss your findings
Conclusions and future
Summarize key results
How can work be extended?
What are the research limitations of your work?
Every workshop, conference, symposium or journal has a preferred citation style
For the class project use IEEE template and citation style
5-Some tools to make life easy:
IEEE template for preparing your paper
The paper should be atmost 6 pages including references
managing your references and citations was you write
Stores bibliographic text (bibtex)
alone desktop vs server application
automatically picks bibliographic data from a website and stores it in the desktop app
MS Word plug-in
For generating references
Managing your citations
pick writing style or install one from the Zotero site in the default installation lacks one
Great tool with libraries for statistical analysis, machine learning and data visuali…
