Tips to make the most of a remote conference: Editorial


Remote conferences can open new career and partnership opportunities for researchers, writes Svetlana Ugarcina Perovic (Fudan University). To make the most of a remote opportunity, Perovic recommends properly preparing for the event beforehand by reviewing the conference agenda and reserving preferred sessions or talks that align with research interests. The author also encourages attendees to ensure that their conference platform profile is updated with a photo, brief summary of current work, and contact information. During the event, Perovic discourages multitasking and instead advises attendees to put their time and energy into connecting with other conference attendees. The author recommends taking steps to connect with presenters, panelists, and other participants after a conference to continue the conversation.
