Scenario 1: The first conference paper



A PhD student coming to the end of his first year tells you he’s had a paper accepted for a conference in 2 months’ time. This will be his first conference paper and you’re aware, from your observations in supervisions and other activities, that he lacks self-confidence.


  • Talk to other research students about their conference experiences
  • Wait! It’s not the right time for you to present at this conference
  • Undertake some presentation training
  • Get some practise presenting for an audience
  • Make sure I read your paper before you go
