Reasons to Attend
Attending conferences is critical for academics and scientists for three main reasons.
- First, it is vital to be updated on latest developments of the scientific field: events experts will gather to share their findings and recommendations.
- Second, this is a nice chance to have your own contribution in the scientific discussion and present your own work.
- And third, this is an excellent chance to meet colleagues and to socialise out of labs.
So think of the major benefits of attending conferences in person: participation in academic discussion and building relations with other participants. Networking is helpfull in career development.
