DAY 1: We meet early on Friday 16 November for the Research Symposium. This is a full day of research paper presentations, panel sessions and insights from our invited keynote speakers. We conclude with an early dinner, leaving plenty of time to enjoy the long spring evenings of Melbourne and vibrant Carlton area.
DAY 2: We continue Saturday morning with a half day professional development workshop (PDW). This year, the focus of the PDW is: What makes an excellent introduction? The introduction to your paper may only be the opening few pages. Nonetheless, it plays a pivotal role in shaping how a reviewer will read your manuscript and, sometimes, even whether or not she will continue reading at all! The process of crafting an excellent introduction can, however, be mysterious.
This day will give you the opportunity to work with senior academics as mentors and other participants to give and receive feedback, develop your skills, and hone your submitted introductions.
We conclude the Annual Meeting with an informal lunch – and discuss how to keep in touch and future plans.
