Abstract:

Often major energy is being spent on writing scientific papers such as conference, workshop, journal or theses works. However, in our daily lives, we often end up working on and  writing "the other stuff".
This talk will discuss writing approaches towards the other scientific documents than scientific papers. As researchers, we often must write recommendation letters, compose our resumes and curriculum vita, write competitive proposals, and prepare technical critiques to other researchers work. I will discuss some guidelines how to approach writing of these other documents  that can very much "Make you or Break you".
