I would like to submit a part of my master's thesis which is more or less close to an end. I wrote the entire thesis without having much feedback from my advisor as he's in a different city and we had literally no chance to meet except a few times. The feedback he had provided was too little and I want to submit a part of the thesis to a conference on my own. I will give his name of course while submitting but do I have to also inform him? If I have to, then he might not approve this as he contributed very little and still he doesn't like my research much. What should I do according to your experiences?
- Should I inform him and bare his negative comments about not submitting at all?
- Or should I submit as single-author paper as I, from the beginning to the end, was only not the writer (of course it's my thesis) but also the solely contributor to this thesis? (He even said it to me as " you did very much well in fact, on your own", in one of our meeting.)
edit: by giving his name, I mean not as a formal authorship, rather than as a footnote, sth like that.
