Typically, the work a student does on a project is suitable for publication. The company and/or funding agency usually requires a report of the work you’ve done, so the first step is to start with that report and expand upon it as publications will typically have more technical details than your reports. Before writing the research paper, you should keep the following points in mind:

· Once you have an idea of conferences or journal submission, notify your company partner. Ensure they have enough notice to prepare for and review your submissions.

· Throughout your project consider any information you may want to include in your papers or thesis. Some information is proprietary to the company or their customers. There is a risk that the information you include could be in breach of your NDA or contracts they have signed with others.

· Companies must approve the inclusion of information, especially if specific details are provided about datasets, data dictionary, source of the dataset, images of the company’s property.

If you are inexperienced in publishing papers, the DeepSense team is here to support you. The major sections of the research paper are
