At the EAFP meeting in Finland in September 2013, we are delighted to introduce our programme of workshops for students and junior scientists, with inaugural sessions on effective scientific writing, and professional networking.
Workshop 1: Effective and Enjoyable Scientific Writing
This workshop will focus on writing an effective scientific paper, and making this a pleasurable experience! After review of the contents of the main parts of a paper, the students will learn key strategies for writing from the reader’s perspective (the key to great writing), will plan a bulleted outline, and do practical exercises in constructive effective titles, and writing compelling introductions and discussions. The workshop is targeted at individuals just beginning to write scientific papers, such as Ph.D. students and post-doctoral fellows. Workshop duration is 3 hours.
Both workshops will be taught by Dr. Sarah Poynton, long time EAFP member, fish parasitologist, award winning teacher, and freelance scientific editor. Sarah has taught numerous student workshops in many different areas of professional development, and has a particular interest in working with international students and junior scientists.
Advance registration is required for each workshop, and there is a maximum attendance of 20 participants for each workshop. Maintaining a small class size allows for personal instruction, and intense interactivity, thus helping to ensure effective use of time! Workbooks will be provided, and electronic versions of the teaching material will be made available to all participants.
There is no charge for the workshops.
How to get further information
If you would like further information about the workshops, please contact Sarah Poynton via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 16th International Conference on Diseases of Fish and Shellfish will be held at the conference centre Tampere Hall in Tampere, Finland. Scientific and technical sessions consisting of poster presentations, invited talks, keynotes, oral presentations, workshops and an EAFP General Assembly will take place during the Conference. Planned social events include a Welcome Cocktail, Civic Reception and the traditional Conference Banquet.
In order to ensure that appropriate topics are covered, including emerging areas we are very interested in hearing any suggestions for potential topics for scientific sessions and workshops at the conference. EAFP members and non-members are encouraged to submit proposals.
More information will be available on the EAFP website as well as in the 2nd announcement.
We look forward to seeing you at the 16th International Conference on Diseases of Fish and Shellfish organized by the EAFP.
