Conference Basics - Tips and Tricks!

As promised to attendees, we have the Conference Tips sheet ready for you! This was originally prepared by a fantastic researcher here at the University of Alberta, Cressida Heyes, and she kindly let us adapt it for TIN.

Our Director (and TIN mastermind), Jerry Varsava, has made some tweaks and we hope that this will answer some of the questions that we have already been receiving from the participants. I am sure that there are more questions out there, but this lays out the preparation of your paper, the structure of a conference panel, tips on giving your paper, asking and receiving questions during the session and what happens AFTER the conference.

You can view the document on our Google Docs site:

And just to remind you all: don't hesitate to contact me with any additional questions at any point. No question is too small - a great deal of you are travelling vast distances to attend and we want to make this conference as memorable as possible!

Happy writing (and practicing out loud...I know all of you are, right?!)
