Academic conferences are exciting venues for scholars to highlight their own research, share lab accomplishments, and network with academic peers and potential collaborators. With preparation and an open mindset, students can make valuable connections and foster meaningful conversations among peers.
This seminar will focus on actions graduate students can take before conference attendance to maximize participation at these settings.
Participants will be able to:
- Compare and contrast conference presentation types to align with their professional goals
- Set networking goals in preparation for conference engagement
- Understand how to approach funding opportunities to support conference travel and attendance
