Designing Abstracts and Attending Conferences

Please join EGSA next Wednesday October 19 2pm in Rome 771 for October's Professional Development workshop "Designing Abstracts and Attending Conferences." Attending conferences and presenting your work is a key component to your graduate school success. Not only does it provide you with an opportunity to connect with people working in your field, it also diversifies your resume and opens doors to other professional opportunities like publishing.

However, designing abstracts and attending conferences can seem daunting, especially if you are new to the experience. How do write a good abstract? How do you decide which conferences to attend? What should you expect from a conference experience? How do you even find the time to work on conference papers?
EGSA would like to help answer these and any other questions you have about this process. It is never too soon to begin thinking, writing, and submitting abstracts to conferences. This workshop is designed with all of our graduate students in mind - M.A. and PhD. students, those who have attended conferences, and those who have not.

We will post online content after the event, but we hope to see many of you there next week. Oh, and delicious baked goods will be provided. Please visit us on Facebook to RSVP and to view event details.
