More Info


Academic conferences are important channels for researchers to present and discuss their work, as well as network with leading experts in their field.  While most graduate students have developed a strong foundation in writing papers, another skill of equal importance for disseminating research findings is giving conference presentations. This workshop provides participants with key strategies to successfully prepare and present their research at a conference. The workshop will cover several important considerations for presenting at conferences, including preparing slides, reducing your dependency on written prompts, discovering your natural presentation style, tips for engaging your audience and writing in a conversational manner, and advice for handling the question and answer session after the presentation. Workshop attendees will also receive advice on how to organize and pitch panels for professional conferences, including suggestions for contacting potential panelists as well as advice on writing and compiling panelists’ proposals.
