Some advice for my students
Dear students, please pay attention to the following advice:
- Graduate students at COPPE should check this site and, in particular, this document. These slides summarize the information and may be useful.
- Learn how to find good research problems.
- Learn how to write an abstract.
- Learn how to prepare good slides. Chapter 5 of Beamer's User Guide provides many useful tips for preparing slides, even if you are not intending to use LaTeX. Anyway, it is also a good idea to learn how to use LaTeX.
- Learn how to prepare good posters for conferences.
- Learn how to review conference submissions.
- Check arXiv at least once a week. Focus on quant-ph and, maybe, CoRR.
- Follow good scientific blogs, such as: ,  and  (feel free to recommend other blogs to this list). Discuss interesting posts with your colleagues.
- Pay attention to important conferences on your topic of research. If you are planning to present a talk (or even a poster) on a particular conference, please talk to me as soon as the organizers announce the important dates.
- If you are a foreigner student in Brazil, you should try to learn Portuguese.
- You should always practice your English (unless, of course, you are a native English speaker). You may try Duolingo, for instance.
