MON, MAY 20 2019-theG&BJournal-Conference Papers: Conference papers refer to articles that are written with the goal of being accepted for presentation in a conference; typically an annual (or biannual) event with a specific scope where you can present your research results to the scholastic community, usually through an oral presentation, a poster presentation, or a tabled discussion (www.quora.com). It is different from a journal which is a regular periodical publication, printed perhaps monthly or bi-monthly, which contains collection of reviewed papers (https://academia.stackexchange.com).
Why are Conference Papers Exceptional?
There is no better way to transmit your researches to your fellow mavens than writing an effective conference paper. It only does not introduce your new ideas in doing things differently from how it’s been done before; it helps raise your prominence in your line of career. It also helps resolve/answer some critical questions that bother on the research questions, which might be raised.
What to Look Out for in Your Conference Paper?
Introduction- Specify the significance of the study.
Literature review – Is generally thought that half of your reference is under 5 years. The literature review explains different citations from different source and how it correlates with the topic under discussion.
Research Methodology – Describe research design in the form of – Data collection plan (quantitative and/or qualitative) and Data analysis plan (quantitative and/or qualitative).
Findings – As the name implies, it shows the qualitative findings, including tables to clarify descriptive and inferential statistics.
Conclusion – State the problem and analyze solutions enumerated to solve the problems.
Reference – Indicates where citation were been taken from.
What Do You Need To Do?
Refer to your theme, and enlarge on it in various ways throughout your presentation. Experienced speakers know the value of having a theme. When they are preparing a talk, the theme helps them to focus attention on a narrower field of information and to think more deeply about it.
WHY DO IT? Why? It unifies your presentation and helps the audience to understand what you say and to remember it.
The result is that instead of superficially touching on many points, they develop their material in a way that is more beneficial to their audience. When each of the main points is directly connected to the theme and helps to develop it, the audience is also helped to remember those points and to appreciate their significance.
Although it can be said that your theme is the subject on which you speak, you will find that the quality of your talks will improve if you take the position that your theme is the particular viewpoint from which you develop your subject.
If selection of the theme is left to you, consider first the objective of your presentation. Then as you select the main points that will make up your outline, be sure that these really support the theme you have chosen.
If the theme is assigned, analyze carefully what it indicates as to the way that your material is to be developed.
Some effort may be required to appreciate the value and potential of such a theme. If you will be choosing material with which to develop the assigned theme, make careful selection so that the theme will be kept in focus. On the other hand, if the material is provided, you still need to analyze how to use it in harmony with the theme. You also need to consider why the material is important to your audience and what your objective should be in delivering it. This will help you determine what to emphasize in your delivery.
