Min Zhang opens the #SIGIR2020 student social event.
Jaap Kamps' advise to students at #SIGIR2020:
* Have fun doing science (it's about the process, not about the results): don't mind the paper rejections)
* Science is about people (all science is a about cooperation): Share you ideas early and a lot!
* Career advise: Despite the complaints (by your supervisor) We all love our jobs (otherwise, why we in academia) We have academic independence, academic freedom, and we work with new people and new ideas
To be free of course!
The "unofficial" Information Retrieval Mastodon Instance.
Goal: Make idf.social a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.
Everyone welcome but expect some level of geekiness on the instance and federated timelines.
