and maximise the reach and impact of your research.

What You'll Learn

Selecting the Right Conference empowers researchers and academics to navigate conference selection with confidence. This includes exploring essential criteria to help you choose the best conferences for you.


Submitting Your Proposal provides step-by-step guidance through the conference proposal process. This includes a detailed exploration of what conference organisers want and how to give it to them.

Delivering Your Presentation explores the elements of a high-impact conference presentation which include a well-organised paper, engaging visual design and the components of a strong speech.


Who It's For

These online courses are particularly relevant for researchers and academics who have limited experience presenting at academic conferences.
