Session1:Science Writing Skills
*13:10-14:40 (Sci) / 17:30-19:00 (Med)
In this session we will first discuss the principles of good science writing. Participants will then apply these principles to revising
examples of text from research articles. Next, we will discuss the criteria used for journal selection, resources to aid you in selecting a
journal, and methods of avoiding submission to predatory journals.

Session2:Presentation Skills
*15:00-16:00 (Sci) / 19:20-20:20 (Med)
Nothing creates more fear among researchers than the need to present their work orally at an international conference. The Oral
presentation workshop provides useful advice on preparing and delivering oral presentations. The instructor will discuss organization of
your talk, slide preparation, mental preparation, time management, body language, and how to avoid "Death by PowerPoint", among
other topics.
