ONLINE: How to jumpstart your conference paper article (Natural and Physical Sciences, incl Health and Engineering) (Part One)


Along the path of our academic journey, we often encounter the exciting prospect of attending a conference. This is soon followed by anxiety and fear of actually preparing a Conference Abstract/Paper from our work. Well, Fear Not!! Despite this involving planning, reflecting and a slightly “different” style of writing to that of a dissertation/thesis or proposal, we are here to guide you towards an excellent conference paper. In this 2-part interactive workshop we will journey together through the maze of different conferences and their own regulations/policies. Together, we will decipher Conference Instructions for Authors and you will actively start preparing and collating your own manuscript. We will spend time on the basic writing structure as well as the required referencing and formats. We will engage in self-critique and in-house “peer-review” sessions. The main objective will be to leave you with confidence in your own writing ability and increase that excitement of sharing your paper with the greater academic fraternity.

Prof Davids has more than 12 years of experience, published close to 40 peer-reviewed journal articles and presented at numerous international and national conferences including media and television interviews. Together with your input, this workshop is designed to stimulate, enthuse and build your confidence in preparing for a Conference. We look forward to inviting you along, LETS GO TOGETHER!!
