Link of the Week - Creating scientific papers, the easy way

If anyone feels that they don't get to attend enough scientific meetings as it is, how about SCIgen, the automated paper generating tool?

Its creators, Jeremy Stribling, Max Krohn and Dan Aguayo — all grad students at MIT — say that SCIgen is a program that generates random Computer Science research papers, including graphs, figures and citations, all with the use of  “context-free grammar.”

Simply plug in your name and those of your colleagues, press the button and out comes a prepared scientific paper ready for submission, complete with references and figures.

Scarily, the inventors claim that they have had papers accepted at genuine scientific meetings - and have attended and presented the slides!

(Warning: don't try this at home. For amusement only.)

A colleague in the office ‘wrote’ one in less than 30 seconds the other day. . .
