Networking: Conferences

Conferences offer huge opportunities for the academic community to interact. Because conference papers cover research that has not previously been disseminated, they are at the cutting edge of research. Conferences therefore offer an opportunity to raise awareness of your new findings and receive the approval or review of your peers. For many academics the scope for networking is as important as presenting a paper. Find out about forthcoming conferences at Conference alerts
