Abstract for: How to Write a Good SD Paper

A full afternoon of lecture, discussion and exercises, evenly divided between doing SD work that supports good papers, and paper-writing heuristics. The intend audience is student and consultants, and the material applies equally to thesis work and single paper publication. The material is based on everything it took for the presenter to make the transition from a not particularly gifted writer to someone with a reasonable publications record, and never having had an article submission turned down. (Except one, and we'll talk about it.) The workshop gives quantitative guidelines where feasible to tell the writer "what's likely to be good enough". The offering is a refinement of last year's well-received workshop.
