Presenting vs Workshopping

Friday, June 26, 2015

Over the past twelve years, I've attended many conferences in the social sciences and humanities. All of them have followed the same basic format: submit an abstract for the proposed presentation and, if accepted, write and present the paper. Usually, 20 minutes is set aside for the presentation, with 5-10 minutes following it during which the audience can ask questions. When I started applying to business conferences about two years ago, I was introduced to a slightly different model. The association required submission of a full paper for review instead of just an abstract. This surprised me because it seemed like much more work for the conference organizers to review entire papers instead of abstracts. It also meant that I had to have the research in more of a finalized format rather than using the conference as a forum to test things out. In some ways, it was just as challenging to edit the fully-formed paper back down to a 20-minute presentation. In either case, however, I found that the question periods tended not to be as helpful as I might hope, probably because 20 minutes isn't enough time to give the background and detail necessary to generate a good discussion.

Research into Water Quality Receives NSERC Discovery Grant

Friday, June 26, 2015

Research being led by Dr. Ken Oakes, Industrial Research Chair in Environmental Remediation, Verschuren Centre, has been awarded $120,000 through the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Discovery Grants competition. The research uses nanomaterials – materials that are really small sizes, about 100,000 times smaller than an average human hair - to clean water. This research will help protect human and environmental health by protecting water quality in Canada, and potentially globally.
