The summertime and fall that is early the things I call “conference season“; somehow, all of the conferences that interest me personally during my industry constantly just just take place between mid-June and early September, and I discover the rhythm of my summer time (and far of the season) dictated by these activities that are fixed points over time, unlike all of those other wibbly-wobbly, and mostly self-imposed, schedule associated with PhD. Going to at the least two seminars per 12 months means being forced to remain on top of information collection, data analysis, presentation abilities and networking. Moreover it offers you the opportunity to consider carefully your work from several perspectives, and particularly exactly how it fits to the existing discussion between researchers in your industry, that is acutely helpful for sitting yourself down and composing papers (ideally appropriate whenever you return through the meeting). But it addittionally ensures that, as much as my summers are described as last second analyses, PowerPoint slides, practice speaks, packaging, travel and jet-lag, winter months months are characterized by composing abstracts, and finding a story that is interesting inform about my research….
…in just a number of terms.
Well, not a handful. Possibly similar to 200 or 300 terms. But that is fundamentally a few if you ask me, provided my failure to stick to a word-limit for any such thing I have actually ever printed in my life up to now ( we blog articles included), plus the additional challenge of experiencing become selective if you have a project that is huge a lot of interesting items to state about this.
