Conference Basics

For a great number of students attending TIN 2012, this will be their first foray into the world of academic presentations. It can be daunting, nerve-wracking, and exciting - presentations bring out a wide range of emotions!

We asked Canada Research Chair, Dr Cressida Heyes, to share with us her conference basics. She also kindly led a KIAS Masterclass on "Presentations 101: Get Your Point Across," where she gave attending students the basics of a great, memorable, and effective presentation. We all learned a great deal from this great lady and I am glad to be able to share the information with the TIN cohort.

...aaaand we're back!

Well now - it's only one month until the registration for TIN 2012 closes! We have 60 students that have been accepted, from around the world. We are so excited to have a bigger cohort this year, with such strong international representation!

The conference will be an excellent time to promote research, important ideas, and new academics' work.

In the coming weeks, I will be posting more information for attendees so keep checking back or sign up for the email notifications!
