Research as a collaborative effort
As society becomes more and more connected, so does research. Research in computer science is changing, becoming more collaborative and open than it was before. The problems that computer science focuses on today have larger impact on society and on the everyday life of individuals. The programming languages community as a whole has tremendous opportunities to contribute in a positive way to this impact. However, these opportunities often require the combined effort of different groups and communities, organized as large collaborative efforts. This approach often contrasts with the needs that young researchers have of building their own research agenda. In this talk, starting from my personal experience, I will discuss some advice on how to survive in collaborative research.
