Navigating Academic Conferences

Navigating Academic Conferences

July 24, 2017 Blog

Conferences are the backbone of academic community building and networking. But what are you supposed to actually do there? Which conferences give you the most bang for your buck, and how many should you go to each year? How much do they cost and where does one get money to go to them? If you’re planning a non-academic career are academic conferences still worth it?

In this webinar, we’ll tackle these questions and more. Dr. Cathy Hannabach will walk you through how to build your professional network through academic conferences, manage your energy levels and nerves, get productive feedback on your work, and avoid going broke in the process. Whether you’re about to attend your first conference in the fall or are an old hat at conference going, this webinar will help you develop a strategy for approaching your conference community-building.
