Workshop: Successful Applications For International Conferences


International conferences and workshops represent one of the essential scholarly activities and are
especially relevant for young academics and their doctoral research. These events provide unique
opportunities for doctoral candidates to present and discuss their research projects among their
peers and relevant professionals and to obtain valuable comments and healthy criticism.
Furthermore, they also serve as networking events and as platforms for exchange of ideas and
contacts. Last, but not least, international conferences and workshops allow doctoral students to
familiarize themselves with other scholarly and scientific environments, which is one of the crucial
experiences that builds a contemporary scholar and/or scientist.


Nevertheless, it often seems difficult to locate these events and sometimes even more
difficult to conceptualize a good application and discussion topic. Doctoral students often find
themselves staring at their “empty” CVs and scrolling through social media feeds, full of pictures
showing their colleagues enjoying the company of their new conference friends. It may sound
trivial, but one should not underestimate the discouraging effect of the feeling of “missing out” and
“not being part of the community.” Academic research, in any capacity, is in its essence a communal
venture, heavily dependent on the work of and feedback from colleagues. Lack of meaningful
contact, in form of opportunities to share one’s research dilemmas and results, can have negative
effects on the research project in total and can contribute to the academic “impostor syndrome.”

Fortunately, in most cases, practice is all that is needed. The goal of this workshop is to help
doctoral students to explore different ways in which they can filter the abundance of available
information and inform themselves about relevant international events. Furthermore, the students
will have the opportunity to practice strategies for compiling, conceptualizing and writing effective
applications for different formats of international conferences and workshops. Finally, the workshop
will provide useful tips regarding the organization of the experience, in order for students to make
the most out of these events.
