Yes, You Can! How to Successfully Contribute to the EDEN Conference

March 1, 2023 @ 15:00 16:00

Virtual Event


This interactive webinar is designed to show that “Yes, you can” submit a paper for this year’s annual EDEN conference (18-20 June). We begin by introducing participants to the overarching conference theme of “Yes, we can” and five related sub topics. News is also shared of our exciting keynote and spotlight speakers and how they will contribute to the conference theme. The main part of the webinar is then designed to offer prospective authors and presenters an inside track on the different paper categories and how to successfully prepare their own conference submission. Members of the conference team share key tips and advice on what makes a great conference paper and how you can ensure your submission is accepted for the Dublin conference. This advice will be particularly helpful for doctoral students and those relatively new to preparing conference submissions. Finally, members of the local team offer practical information on the conference venue and provide travel and accommodation advice to help enhance your visit to Dublin. There will be an opportunity for participants to ask questions relevant to the conference throughout the webinar.
