In May Siyang Song gave a conference talk at IEEE conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition 2018 on his work around facial recognition: Human Behaviors-based Automatic Depression Analysis using Hand-crafted Statistics and Deep Learned Spectral Features.
He said that it was an amazing experience, but felt a little nervous about speaking infront of an expert audience and in his reflections thinks that he needs to get some more practice in public speaking to boost his confidence.
His advice to other PhD students:
“don’t be shy, a top conference can give us chances to exchange ideas with most successful and famous guys in our field face to face”
Will 2019 be the year your publish and present some of your PhD research?
