Book Description

Due to the quick turnaround and oral presentation requirements, immediate feedback, and abundant networking opportunities, publishing at a conference event is a significantly more complex—and for many, more intimidating—proposition than traditional journal and book publishing. However, the additional benefits of successfully presenting your research project at a conference are well worth the effort.

Writing for conferences: A handbook for graduate students and faculty by Leo Mallette and Clare Berger (2011) introduces publishing through conferences, gives the reader tips on finding the right conference and dissecting the call for papers, and provides exercises and examples for abstract writing. The authors discuss co-authoring vs. sole authorship, and list the main sections of your conference paper with an explanation of each. They consider the options for presentation including papers, panels, posters, and chairing a session. The chapter on networking at conferences, toward the end of the book, is especially helpful for people who want more information on how to make connections. The book contains checklists, text boxes, and vignettes that offer additional useful information.

INSPIRING BOOK!!! This is a first book to build a foundation for novice and experienced researchers to publish their valuable works in the desired conference. The book highlights a robust structure on how to begin, follow through, and get published! The process is beneficial at any level and from personal experience, I wish this book was available before I started to present and get published at several conferences. After reading this book, I have applied the process highlighted by Leo Mallette and Clara Berger, and I saw nothing but success at my latest conference. If you are a student and Faculty, you NEED this book, the ideas from this book will shed light on how to be successful in your future scholarly endeavors. Professor E

Format: Paperback
Writing for Conferences: A Handbook for Graduate Students and Faculty, is a "must have" text for any student or instructor who wishes to prepare and present a paper for conferences. The chapters include topics such as finding the "right" conference, preparing for presentation, and networking at the conference. Authors Leo Mallette and Clare Berger clearly fill a niche since there are few books which relate to this subject available. I would recommend this book highly to both graduate students and new faculty as an excellent reference guide to further publishing, career opportunities, and enhancing networking skills.
