** available for bookings from Friday, 10 January 2020


This half day session is aimed at new postgraduate researchers preparing to attend their first academic conference.

Attending conferences are an essential part of your wider research environment. These opportunities will help you to learn more of the latest research, meet with researchers from outside your institution and understand how your research contributes to the wider community. You are, effectively, starting to take your own position within the wider research community, which, longer term, will help you build effectively networks for your ultimate career.

This session aims to help you make the most of these valuable conference opportunities. The session is practice based to help you develop your networking skills and, through related discussions, we will explore differences between subject areas. During the workshop we will:

  • Outline and discuss what to expect at a standard conference

  • Consider how to best prepare to make the most of your attendance

  • Discuss good practice for conference networking to meet your own research objectives and your longer term ambitions

  • Help you prepare a ‘pitch’ to introduce your research to others in related subject areas

  • Develop practical ways to overcome feelings of 'Imposter Syndrome'.


This workshop offers opportunities to gain skills in Personal qualities and Communication and dissemination, outlined in the RDF subdomains B1 and D2.
