We all know that one of the most important parts of establishing a successful science career (or any career for that matter) is the network of colleagues you create. Conferences are a great way to meet people – you share ideas, develop new projects, learn new techniques, find your next employer or employee, and sometimes even have a little fun. This section of the APECS website is dedicated to helping you navigate conferences – from writing an abstract about your work, designing your oral or poster presentation, finding travel funding, serving as a session convener/chair or on a committee, organizing a side workshop or panel – there lots of things you can do and opportunities to take advantage of to start building a great network of colleagues around the world.
Be sure to check the Event listings on the APECS website to find upcoming conferences that may be of interest to you.
