My work has been rejected from a conference. I am working on it to get accepted. As the conference is annually occurred, I think at least 6 or more months will be required to make another submission. However, I just noticed that my advisor shared my work with another student without notice. The other PhD student asked me how to apply my method into his project, which I was pondering for one of my next action items.
I am upset about my advisor, because he barely provided feedback on how to improve the outcomes. He does not copy his discussion with another student. I felt like he just tried to share my ideas to have more publication.
I understood that students should discuss and collaborate each other to improve research. According to another student's email, he does not seem to have any intention for collaboration. He just mentioned that he read my draft of paper and considered applicable to his research, so he just wants to know the implementation details.
I understand the value of collaboration. However, I am not sure if another student and I are supposed to work together, since my advisor did not inform anything about discussion with this student. The other student does not seem to have any intention of collaboration.
Should I just talk to my advisor not to share my undergoing work without any notice and inquire if I am supposed to collaborate or not?
