Getting the most out of conferences, networking and publishing

May 30, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Getting the most out of conferences, networking and publishing: A workshop for postgraduate research students and early career researchers | Professor Andy Bennett (Griffith University)

As the academic world becomes increasingly competitive, particularly at the entry-level stages, careful planning and management of one’s career steps is highly important. While some significant new opportunities for academic profiling have been presented in the form of digital platforms such as Facebook and, established earlier forms of profiling, notably conference presentations, networking and effective publishing also remain critical benchmarks for academic success. Led by Professor Andy Bennett, an experienced academic with extensive conference and publishing experience, this workshop will explore a range of themes relating to getting the most out of academic conferences and publishing. Themes covered will include:

Choosing the right conferences for you and your work.

Presenting a conference paper.

Making the most of networking opportunities.

Publishing from your PhD thesis

Choosing what and where to publish.

The merits of co-publishing as an ECR
