Presenting a Conference Paper

Presenting research results at conferences is a key component of doctoral research. Along with academic journals, conferences are one of the main ways through which researchers share ideas and new developments. They also provide a useful platform for clarifying ideas and understanding related concepts. The aim of this one-day workshop is to promote an understanding of what makes a ‘good’ presentation and to translate this understanding into individual presentations. One of the main challenges facing conference participants is translating one’s research from the written to the oral medium, i.e. compressing a substantial research paper into a short talk. While written material can be reread, oral material cannot be re-heard. Therefore it is important that both the delivery and volume of material are appropriate to the given setting and that the language used communicates well orally.

Contents:

  • to identify and avoid traditional pitfalls in oral presentations
  • to implement appropriate tools for the oral medium, while carefully aligning structure, design and information content
  • to improve accuracy, sophistication and clarity
  • to understand the strengths (and potential weaknesses) of the personal presentation style
