Perhaps of particular interest to those in non-research/ed institutions: “MENTORSHIPS ITS 2011 offers a mentorship program to help those with less experience in academic publication. The mentoring program is intended primarily for authors from non-academics, including industry. Two types of mentoring are available from the mentor: – Early feedback: assistance in framing and composing your research paper – Later feedback: reviewing an already completed paper and providing feedback on the paper In either case, the mentor will help frame your work in context of other related work, and make meaningful suggestions to improve the quality of your contribution. Depending on a type of mentoring submission deadlines are different. Although we cannot guarantee that your submission will be accepted by ITS, mentoring would be helpful for you to turn your ideas into a proper research paper. If you think the mentoring program is beneficial to you, please feel to contact both of the Mentor Chairs via email: Changkyu Choi ([email protected]) Yoichi Sato ([email protected]) The submission type will vary depending on the type of feedback you are seeking.”
