Research Seminar 29 October: Designing, Preparing & Presenting a Conference Paper

Wednesday 29th October, 12pm – 1:30pm, MP203, City Centre Campus

With Professor Peter Larkham, David Adams and Mike Dring

How do we think about preparing for a conference paper?  The topic is usually easy, the abstract is almost always fairly abstract and written a long time in advance; but, as time creeps on, how do we get our ideas together for a good, interesting, informative presentation that keeps to the (usually very short) time available?  In this session Peter Larkham and David Adams (Birmingham School of the Built Environment) and Mike Dring (School of Architecture) discuss how they built their recent paper on infrastructure development in post-war Birmingham presented to the annual conference of the Royal Geographical Society.  They focus on the technique rather than the topic, so don’t let that put you off!
