Continuing on with our PhD Life Hacks Seminars, our Spring Seminar event took place on Tuesday 19 February. The topic was ‘Writing an excellent conference paper’. It was a busy schedule for the morning that began with a meet and greet section with coffee and pastries, to give postgraduate researchers an opportunity to meet others within the AHSS postgraduate community.
Speakers at the event included Dr Niamh Nic Ghabhann, Assistant Dean of Research, who gave a comprehensive talk and practical tips on preparation and delivery of a conference paper. Dean Lillis, President of the Postgraduate Students Union, with Hala Jaber, Vice President of the PSU, gave an informative talk on how their offices can support postgraduate researchers. Ashling Hayes, Head of Research Services in the Glucksman Library delivered a talk on ways of communicating your research for impact.
The event was organised by Dr Niamh Lenahan and there was a great turnout on the day.
The comments and feedback from attendees was very positive and looking forward to more of these event.
