Title: UCC Workshop: Writing and Communication Skills
Molecular Medicine Ireland is offering places across institutions for this two-day workshop covering both scientific writing and presentation skills which will run on 24/25 June 2009 in UCC.
Day 1: Wednesday 24 June
The Workshop Programme on Wednesday 24 June will cover the entire scientific publication process, from the nature of scientific journals (including rankings, impact factors, citation rates etc.), to the structure of a scientific paper, principles of scientific writing, and the scientific publication process from referees to proofs and beyond.
Day 2: Thursday 25 June
On Thursday 25 June, there will be a presentation skills workshop, covering good presentation skills and the preparation of a good scientific presentation (oral or poster). There will also be an optional abstract writing and critiquing session, where students are invited to bring samples of their own writing for discussion and feedback.
