My Future M.Sc. Students

Are you planning to do your M.Sc. program of study under my supervision?

  If so, here is the steps you need to take:

  1. Read my Research Guidelines and make sure that you like my style and would enjoy working with me :)
  2. Then, you have to get admitted to a university as an M.Sc student; doesn't matter which university and where, could be anywhere in the world, as long as I accept it as a reputable university and the university accepts me as your supervisor.  If you are already an M.Sc. student, then proceed with the next step.  Otherwise, work on your admission.  You are welcome to consider my home institution, where I accept M.Sc students, in the area of Computer Systems, in 3 graduate programs:  (1) Department of Computer Science, (2) Department of Applied Mathematics, and  (3) Aras International Campus (پردیس بین‌المللی ارس) of University of Tabriz.  For further information on the admission process, contact the Graduate Admissions Office (مدیریت تحصیلات تکمیلی) of University of Tabriz.
  3. Do a critical review on your area of interest and organize it as a Survey Paper according to EnSuPaper.zip. This work should lead you to some topics of research. Once I am satisfied with your Survey Paper, submit it to a reputable conference and start working on the next item.
  4. Organize your review of Item 3 according to MScSeminar.zip, prepare your presentation, and present, by which time you must have decided on your topic of research.
  5. Do your research and organize it as a research paper according to EnRePaper.zip. Your work on papers of this type goes on until you have at least two papers, submitted to some reputable conferences - one of these papers could be that of item 3.
  6. Once you have at least two reputable conference submissions and while you are waiting for their acceptance, start organizing your M.Sc. Thesis according to MScThesis.zip. Basically, your review work of item 3 and 4 would make up Chapter 2 and your research papers of item 5 goes to chapter 3 of your thesis.
  7. Combine all your work in one extended paper and submit to a reputable journal. You may then prepare for your defense; you don't have to wait for the acceptance of your submissions.
  8. Finally, you need to read and accept the Principles of CS Culture and the statement of Agreement.

    As a final note, I would like to emphasize that I consider your submissions and papers as an important part of your Ph.D. work, for presenting your ideas and your work to a larger audience and giving you the opportunity to collaborate with others worldwide. I should also clarify that the acceptance of your papers is not considered as a prerequisite for your defense and graduation. Obviously, however, the comments you may get on your papers, accepted or not, should be helpful for your work.

Do you still want to do your M.Sc. Thesis under my supervision?

If so, welcome aboard; get a print of the Agreement, fill it up, sign, and call me.
