If you are anything like me, this is a time of year when attending conferences is a foremost concern in one’s mind. This is particularly the case for postgraduate students who will forge vitally important networking links with other academics as well as practitioners from government and industry. There are many decisions to make in relation to these events: what conferences to attend; when should you attend; should they be international or national conferences; how to get around funding issues; and how you can get the most out of the event. In our third instalment of postgraduate issues discussions, I will examine some thoughts and tips on how to make these decisions strategically and smartly, and how to make the most of these important events based on my own experiences.
