What do I include in the section about conference activities?
From PsychWiki - A Collaborative Psychology Wiki
- Include all relevant information, such as Authors, Title, Date, Event (e.g., American Psychological Association), and Location of event.
- Present in APA style. The APA style formatting for posters and talks presented at conferences is provided on page 260 (4.16) of the APA Publication Manual.
- Some suggest that the number of posters should not exceed the number of publications because it may send the wrong signal that you work on many projects but can not get them published. This rule of thumb does not apply to talks or symposium at conferences.
- If you have a sufficient number of talks at conferences and other types of invited talks (e.g., colloquia, brownbags, job talks, etc), you may want another separate section about “Invited Talks.”
