Event Details

Preparing for conferences and networking

Simone Apel  & Prof. Ian Livingstone


Conference presenting is a valuable and necessary part of being a researcher - sharing your ideas, developing skills in explaining and simplifying your research, as well as introducing yourself to others in your field. But it can also be stressful, as you are being judged and are inviting comments on your research. In this workshop we will consider the relative merits of oral and poster presentations, we will discuss the preparation and delivery of your conference paper and we will also look at techniques to help you to manage your nerves. Additionally we will cover chairing and offer networking tips, so that you can get the very best out of the conference experience.


After the workshop you will be able to:-

  • Understand the preparation involved in speaking at a conference
  • Write a well-designed conference paper
  • Improve your speaking style
  • Adopt ways to improve your networking skills
  • Describe some methods for handling nervousness
  • Apply some tips for chairing at a conference

Please note: This workshop focuses on conference presentations - a workshop on designing academic posters will be held on 26 March 2013.

 

This workshop is open to any student currently registered on a research degree programme at the University of Northampton. Further information is available from Simone Apel (simone.apel@northampton.ac.uk; 01604 893418).
