So you’ve written a brilliant paper? Maybe you have a great idea and want some feedback? Need to build your CV? Time to share your genius with the world! Conferences offer academics just such opportunities. However, finding and applying to the right conference can be a daunting task. In this workshop, we will explore the process one might go through in order to have a productive conference experience. Questions that will be addressed include: How does one find conferences and CFPs related to one’s subfield? What process does one go through to apply? What should a novice presenter expect on a panel? How should one prepare? We will have a brief presentation followed by a roundtable. Here’s your opportunity to ask questions!
I don't quite know why the original handout had two owls on it; however, in keeping with the original, I found this image of two owls (I think the same breed/species).
