TITLE Getting Published: The Conference Paper

LEVEL D - Doctoral Workshops/Symposium

ECTS CREDITS Not Applicable

DEPARTMENT Doctoral School

DESCRIPTION Conference participation is an important element of the doctoral experience. Such an event enables researchers to showcase their research, exchange ideas and knowledge, and network with other members in their field. This workshop will focus on the whole process: from conference selection, the call for papers and abstract preparation, through to delivery (if accepted) and finally publication of the proceedings.


By the end of this workshop, doctoral researchers should be able to:

- describe the different event types: seminar, workshop, symposium and conference (national vs. international);
- understand the practical requirements for selecting an event, preparing a conference paper and subsequently publishing the paper;
- approach academic conference participation more effectively.

ADDITIONAL NOTES Applicants are kindly requested to submit to the tutor an abstract relating to their research by Tuesday 14th April 2020 through the following e-mail address:
