Workshop Information

Please join us for the Junior Faculty Workshop at the upcoming SMS Special Conference in Costa Rica. The workshop will be held on Thursday, December 14, 2017 and is open to all conference participants who are currently working as faculty at an academic institution. The workshop will feature several distinguished scholars who will interact with participants in small group discussions, panel presentations, and informal conversations during the coffee-break. We are planning to have six to eight panelists and each panelist will have about 10-20 min to present. The rest of the time will be allocated to discussions.

When to start something ‘new’?

How do you know a research idea is a good one?

Matching your research to the publication outlet
