Shrink the paper

paper似乎就像是一个含着水的海绵，只要想办法挤，总是能使它越来越dry并且越来越tight. 常用的方式有以下一些：

\setlength{\textfloatsep}{0pt} 这个会减少一些图片与文字之间的距离，要是还有的距离比较大，就使用\vspace{-10pt} 一般是图片的caption部分和图片之间，总有一些可以缩小的空隙。

remove the “there be” or “it is”

Here are several examples:

it is necessary to use A to do sth -> using A to do sth is necessary

when there is a fixed number of processes -> when the number of processes is fixed

when there are arbitrary combinations of A and B -> When the combination of A and B is arbitrary.

Other concrete examples and tipcs

logic flow

There is one paper to discuss the elasticity, we did not provide enough information at the beginning to discuss details of the elasticity, the reviewer provides a good logic flow to reorganize it.

Originally, we start with the sentence such as our works focuse on A, B, C and then use several sentences to explain the A B C in detail.

When listing the structure of the framework, we tend to use the overarching method and then the specific point. But when we try to argue sth, do not hurry to give out a specific conclusion quickly and directly. We need to get to that point step by step. Explain the reason clearly and then move to the results, instead of explaining that in a inverse way, other people might not catch the main point in this way.

Try to put the adv after the verb as much as possible. 习惯上adv是放在verb的后面的，尤其是only further之类的，这个和中文的顺序有些相反。

fianlly vs at last

from vs in

There is a expression such like “Z is a PhD student from CS department”, 之后被老师改成了 “Z is a PhD student in CS department”. 这里到底是in还是from自己之前也弄的比较模糊，这个文章 列了几个常见的from的用法，后面加表示具体地方的名词才是那种来自哪里的表述。一般都是一个地名，而CS department是机构的名称，这里使用in表示自己在这个机构里面，这样更合适一些。
