What are the important considerations before kicking start your research? How to avoid running into unnecessary troubles and plan a more focused research agenda? In this talk, I will be sharing my experience and thoughts as both researcher and reviewer on some concerns that often frustrate young Ph.D. students and junior faculty, such as how to select a promising research direction, what is a valuable research problem, how to scaffold the structure of a paper and write it to meet the expectations of reviewers, etc. This talk aims to help researchers who just start their careers in cybersecurity and related fields in hopes of creating insightful discussions and providing needed guidance.
