Will there be any breaks?
Yes! There will be a break in each afternoon where we'll provide tea and coffee outside the Senate Room. Check talkaboutx.net
for precise timings. We'll also stop at the top of each hour to let new people join after their classes.
What will happen on the day?
We're running this like an authentic academic conference to give you a flavour of what a career in academia is like. We'll have 3 presenters in each hour. They'll talk for 10 minutes followed by 5 minutes for questions, and there will be a chance for people to join us from their lectures at the top of each hour.
*Can I come to both days?
Yes! Just register for the number of tickets you would like. We have 4 ticket types available: Day 1 am; Day 1 pm; Day 2 am; and Day 2 pm. If you want to come for the full conference on both days, please register for all 4 tickets. However, if you want to drop in to only one or two sessions, that's totally fine too.
Can I bring a friend?
Yes! Just make sure they get a ticket here too so we're not overbooked. Our fantastic speakers have written their presentations with a wide audience in mind, so you shouldn't need any specialist knowledge to follow the talks. Please feel free to share our web address (talkaboutx.net
) anywhere you want.
Will there be any photography?
We have the University's professional Media Production Unit on hand to record the presentations. They'll also be filming some general shots of the event so that we can make a promotional video for 2019's conference. If you'd prefer not to be filmed, just let them know on the day.
