  1. I'm going to my first in-person conference in January, and I also got my abstract accepted so I'll be giving an oral presentation as well (woo!) But, I have no idea what an acceptable dress code is- for a male, is a suit and tie too dressy? Would khakis be too under-dressed? It's a new environment for me and I'm worried about looking out of place. Thanks!
  2. Hi Everyone! I'm a second year MSc. S-LP student at the University of Alberta. I wanted to make a quick post about an opportunity that might be of interest for people who are applying to the program. The OASIS (Organization of Alberta Students in Speech) Conference this year is held on Saturday September 28, 2019 at the University of Alberta (ECHA building). The conference's theme this year is "Communication Access: Building Bridges to Participation." In addition to clinicians, we often get interested undergraduate students traveling from AB, BC and SK attending the conference! The most important and helpful session for prospective students is "How to navigate the S-LP application process" which is presented by the admissions coordinator, Ms. Vicki Trombley. This year, the conference is also providing the opportunity for prospective students to sign up for a tour of the Rehab Med building, where the S-LP classes are held. These tours will be led by 2nd year MSc. S-LP students, so you can ask as many questions as you want about their application and journey in the program! For more details on the event, follow visit this facebook page! We look forward to seeing you there. Feel free to ask any questions about the program or the conference!
  3. Hi all! Wondering if anyone is going to be attending American Ethnological Society conference in March, and is looking for a roomshare to save costs.
  4. Greetings! I am an incoming second-year sociology PhD student. During Y1, I submitted a theoretical seminar paper for a full paper session at the ASA annual meeting (mostly just to practice writing abstracts) and, much to my surprise - it was accepted. The problem (aside from that it currently has no original research) is that the paper's arguments need a lot of fleshing out. I didn't have time to revise it by the deadline so, it is what it is. My question: how would one go about presenting such a paper? I know people generally present original research at conferences. I was thinking that I would primarily focus on one of several arguments and the direction I would *like* to take it. Any advice would be very much appreciated. I should note that I would eventually like to revise and publish this paper! Thanks in advance. Signed, a neophyte sociologist
  5. Hello, I submitted my abstract for a contributed talk at the Ecological Society of America annual meeting in February. According to their website, I should've heard back if my abstract was accepted but I didn't. Does that mean mine was rejected? Would also love to know if anyone has heard anything from the same conference, or if it's a norm not to expect rejection emails. Thanks!
  6. Hello All! I'll be submitting to NCA this year and, since it's my first time, I thought I'd make a place for all of us to discuss the conference, any tips we might have for newbies (aka me), and just as a general place to let off some steam as we prepare our papers and/or presentations. Who has presented at NCA before? Anyone excited for Salt Lake this year? How long are presentations? Just how crazy is it really? Share anything about the NCA or your process you'd like! For me, I'm currently making the switch from Chicago Manual to APA format and writing my paper (it's outlined and all the research is done). How about you?
  7. This is my first year in my M.A. program and I was wondering if I could get some advice about conferences. My university will only fund one conference a year, so I really want to make them count. I need my CV to look as impressive as possible for Ph.D. applications in two years (an anxiety I'm sure we all feel/ have felt). I'm on a fellowship my first year, so I have plenty of time to create a work from scratch, I'm just not sure which conferences to look into. I'm hoping to attend one in the Spring Semester. My focus is American lit, 19th century to modern day (I know, too broad, but I figure I have time to specify). Also, my strengths lie in analyzing anything having to do with gender and sexuality. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  8. Hello all! I am helping organize and publicize an International Conference the RCKC (Research Center for Korean Community) is hosting at CUNY Queens College in New York. I am currently a Research Assistant for Dr. Pyong Gap Min at the CUNY Graduate Center, and applying to PhD programs to study immigration and race this upcoming December. I want to do well at the tasks Dr. Min has assigned to me, and part of it is making sure this conference runs smoothly. If the event is too far from you or you cannot attend, it would help me a great deal if you could at least like our page on Facebook. We are relatively new on social media and I have the sole responsibility of gaining online exposure for the organization. Here is some background for the event: "The forced mobilization of an estimated 80,000 to 200,000 Asian women to Japanese military brothels during the Asia-Pacific War (1932-1945) was one of the most heinous and brutal war crimes in history. These victims of military sexual slavery have been referred to as “comfort women,” a euphemism originally used by Japanese soldiers. Although it has been over 70 years since the Asia-Pacific War and World War II ended, the Japanese government has not yet made a sincere apology and compensation to the victims. In 1990, a redress movement began in South Korea in an attempt to persuade the Japanese government to apologize for its past actions and to sufficiently compensate the surviving victims. This movement has received global support from South Korea, other Asian countries, the U.S., and many other Western countries. This conference invites “comfort women” scholars and movement leaders in Korea, Japan, and the United States to look back at the 27-year old movement and to publicize the “comfort women” issue and the Japanese government’s obligations to take responsible actions to the victims and Asian countries."

Thanks so much, Kevin

  11. I'm supposed to present at a conference in the Spring and I'm wondering what software to use for the presentation. I regularly use Powerpoint and I'm most comfortable with it, but I recently came across Piktochart, which can be used for making infographics and in presentations. I'm just curious if anyone has experience using this for presentations and if you can share how it went? I haven't written the paper this is on just yet, and will probably be presenting this as current research (which it is), rather than a finished piece, so a presentation vs. reading is what I'm going for. Thoughts?
  12. Earlier in the year I asked what the relative weight was of publications and conferences. I received some very useful feedback from fuzzylogician regarding the apparent weight of those items and their applicability to my overall application. As it is rapidly closing in on "that time of year" for applications I was hoping I could get a bit more information as to how conferences and publications should be placed in a statement of purpose or personal statement. A bit of personal background regarding this question: I recently graduated with two B.S. degrees and a minor from a medium sized state school. I am applying to political science and philosophy graduate programs in Europe and Canada (I am a US citizen). As it stands, I have presented multiple pieces of research at twelve conferences (several undergraduate conferences, several graduate conferences, and two professional conferences). I have also published two pieces; one in an undergraduate journal and one in an academic magazine. I also have one piece currently in the "Revise and Resubmit" stage for a professional peer-reviewed journal and two other pieces currently under review by an undergraduate journal in the US and another in the UK. Three immediate questions spring to mind: (1) should I attempt to include these conferences and publications in my SOP? (Obviously it could become a quantity issue at a certain point) (2) If yes to (1) - should I attempt to showcase the more prestigious or professional-level conferences over the regional and undergraduate conferences, and (3) The pride-and-joy of my undergraduate career is undoubtedly my political theory paper being reviewed and as requisitioned for re-submission for a professional academic journal. Unfortunately, given the average time frame for publication by this journal, the fact that is has yet to be published, and that several application deadlines will likely pass before I receive any information as to its publication status - how can I include this in my SOP? I want to include something about this paper - it is something I am extremely proud of given my status as an undergraduate. But obviously having a publication to list on your CV and claiming in an SOP that you might be published assuming everything goes perfectly in the editing process, are two dramatically different things. Any thoughts?

  14. I am freaking out and I would really appreciate any suggestion. My manuscript has been published without my permission in a conference proceeding while at the same time, the same paper is being reviewed to be published in a different journal. I did present my research in a small conference in July 2015, which is why they have access to my manuscript. However, I did not submit my paper to be published in the proceeding, and I specifically requested them not to publish my manuscript in their proceeding because I had been planning to submit my full paper to a respectable journal in the field. In October 2015, the conference committee has confirmed by email that they will not publish my paper in their proceeding, which is why I submitted my manuscript to the journal. However, when the conference proceeding was published online in their website in February 2016, I was shocked to find out that my paper is still published in the proceeding. Thinking that they might have made a mistake, I immediately asked them to republish the proceeding without my paper, which they did immediately, and apologized. However, today I found out that somehow my paper is still included in their online proceeding. I am afraid that the journal editors will think that I have violated their publication ethics - worst case I will be blacklisted to publish in their publication. What should I do? This is my first manuscript submission and I already mess it up. I'm trying not to have a panic attack *breathe*
  15. I recently commented on a colleague's paper at a humanities conference - since it was my first time commenting, I spent some time beforehand scrounging around the 'net for helpful tips or advice. The most useful of these was an article by Professor W. John Koolage, which I hoped some people here might find as useful as I did. (Disclaimer: since my experience with commenting was in the humanities, and that looks to be the author's field as well, this might be less useful to the folks in the sciences). The article is below: "How to Comment on a Paper" by Professor W. John Koolage So, you have been asked to comment on a paper at a conference. In all likelihood you have not done this before, and for many of you have never seen it done either. In what follows, I offer some suggestions as to how to approach commenting at a professional conference. Basics Congratulations on become an importnat part of the creative output of an academic research program! Commenting on a paper is the next most important role to presenting a paper at a professional conference. Paper writers will be relying on you to do two things: (1) help the audience identify and understand the salient features of the paper, and (2) be the key person to ask critical questions that will help the presenter think about, improve, and expand their paper. While this is a shock to most speakers, the audience at a conference might not be well equipped to help the speaker think about their paper critically. Of course, it is nice to simply provice new ideas to an audience, most speakers are actually looking for help in assessing the htoughts in their paper in terms of clarity and closeness to the truth. This is why your job is so important. Details First, you should take your job as a presenter seriously. This is especially important because commenters are also generating creative output. In many cases, commenters have een noted for their philosophic skills, thoughts, and critical abilities. In some cases, the commenter can be a greater benefit to an audience than the speaker themselves. As a result, you should dress the part of a professional, write your comments in a professional manner, and be kind and courteous to your speaker and the audience. Second, you should invest some time in your comments. I recommend the following format for a 5 minute commenting session; I also recommend that if you have 10 minutes you simply double the formula below. (5 and 10 minutes are common lengths for commenting.) Your number one goal is to help everyone understand the key ideas and argument in the paper. You should write roughly 1 page (double spaced) that summarizes the speaker's paper and identifies the central argument of the paper. Your second goal is to provide a professional critique of the philosophic ideas / arguments in the paper. In general it is best to focus on one or two "problem" areas for the speaker's paper. I recommend two, since this is more helpful to the speaker and requires slightly less work on your part (providing only one trenchant criticism will take you much longer, believe me). In practice, this amounts to writing roughly 2/3 of a page of each criticism / comment - for a total of, roughly, 1.5 pages. Your criticisms / comments are likely to be one of three sorts (1) another author(s) has offered a competing account of phenomena the speaker is addressing, and in your opinion the other author(s) must be addressed by the speaker; (2) the speaker's argument / central concept(s) contain a philosophical (logical or conceptual) flaw that you are prepared to explain; (3) the speaker has provided an incorrect / misleading / marginal reading of another author, and you are able to explain the standard / correct / less straw-person version of the author. In all cases, you need to be respectful of the speaker's intelligence, work, and motivation. You are simply helping them out, not trying to "get them". Finally, you should offer, roughly, 1/2 page of suggestions on how the speaker might "fix" their paper, other directions they may take the paper, and / or thoughts on other problems they may solve with their key ideas / arguments. Finally, remember that your comments are part of your own creative output, so be sure to make them such that you are proud to present them in front of an educated set of peers. Other Thoughts Here are some final thoughts that might also be of some use in thinking about commenting. First, people are typically focused on the speaker; in this way, you are simply helping the audience understand and think about the speaker's paper. This means, audience almost always view your work as good, since it helps them and since they're not there to evaluate you; this takes a lot of pressure of speaking off of you. Second, some commenters take the time to thank the speakers for their papers and to say a few words about the merits of the speaker as a thinker / person / contributor to the profession. This is by no means a requirements; in some cases this comes off as nic,e and thoughtful, in others it comes off as disingenuous. Third, I cannot repeat enough that it is your main job to help the speaker. The best way to do this is in the part of your comments where you help the audience understand the speaker. That said, most speakers are extremely thankful for the fact that you have read their paper and thought critically about their paper. It is very common for speakers to acknowledge commenters in the final versions of their paper. This is a good way to participate in the creative process. Finally, commenting is an excellent way to impress people and make new contacts in a much lower stress way than presenting. Be your best self when commenting and people will seek out your thoughts in the future. Final Important Note Most commenters provide their speakers with a short summary of their critiques a couple of weeks before the talk. This gives the speaker some time to consider responses. It is considered very uncouth for the speaker to change their initial talk in line with the comments, but it is equally uncouth to blindside a speaker. Thus, I strongly recommend you get in contact with your speaker as soon as possible, and you provide them with some idea the line your critiques will take a week or two before the presentation.
  16. Is anyone attending the SRHC in Tampa this weekend?

    CAA 2012

    Anyone else going to CAA 2012? Or, have you been to CAA in the past?
  18. Also are there a lot of isolation within the department? If I study computational chemistry, for example, I will be talking to chemists, and not to those in finance, civil engineering, computer science in the same department?
  19. Hi all, I'm an MA-holding, humanities adjunct at a community college, and I was recently accepted to present a conference paper this spring. The conference is within driving distance (3-4 hours), but since my current department only offers travel funds to its tenure track faculty, I'm going to be left paying transport and lodging expenses myself. My question is this: do you happen to know of any other places I can look for funding? I will apply for grants from the conference itself, but I'm interested in whether or not you know of anywhere else -- NPOs, etc. Thanks for whatever help you can offer!
  20. Anyone going to the AAA's this fall or have any tips on how to approach faculty members who you are considering working with/you want them to consider working with you? ha. Thanks in advance!
