Five key lessons for organising a conference

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Organising an academic conference is an experience that many social science scholars will undertake during their careers. There is however a lack of a developed academic literature that provides some guidelines. This article draws on the experiences of the authors in organising an international interdisciplinary conference at the University of Huddersfield in June 2008. It provides five key lessons that might assist colleagues within the profession in their organising of future conferences.
