Through the looking-glass, tired of working my brain out while familiarizing myself with a giant codebase I was reverse-engineering to prove a theory for an upcoming conference, I started asking myself why I was doing what I was doing? Just to get a paper out? Or to make a great contribution to science and my field? I googled something along the lines of “How to write a best IEEE RAS conference paper”. What I found was very interesting as I came across this IEEE Student Activities Committee Paper. It offers great insight into what constitutes writing a paper that merits IEEE Robotics and Automation Society best conference awards.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
