Navigating a Scientific Meeting.

During this informal session, students and faculty will share their strategies for getting the most out a scientific meeting, both professionally and personally. This session will be aimed at undergraduate and graduate students, but all are encouraged to attend and share their perspectives. Topics to be addressed include: successful professional networking, tips for choosing sessions and activities, presenting posters and oral papers, and professional conduct. We will also have the opportunity to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of Botany meetings and to address ways in which these meetings may be improved. Whether it is your first meeting or your fifty-first, come ask the questions you have been afraid to ask, share your opinion on how you benefit from scientific meetings, and express what you would like to see offered in the future.
