Managing Your Data (Engineering RDC) [Places] 11:00 - 12:00 West Hub, West Room 1

There is an increased emphasis on managing and sharing data produced in research. Many of the research funders supporting work at the University of Cambridge require that research data are openly available with as few restrictions as possible.

Research data management is a complex issue, but done correctly from the start, could save you a lot of time and hassle at the end of the project; when preparing your data for a publication or writing up your thesis. Research data takes many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications.

This session aims to help you get started with managing your data by introducing you to key principles around organising, storing, archiving and sharing your data. You will also learn how to create your own Data Management Plan.

Mon 22
Presentation Skills (Computer Science) new [Places] 14:00 - 15:00 West Hub, West Room 2

Presentations are one way to share your research. You want to ensure your message is clear and that you are confident in presenting your information to others.

This session will help you to let your key points stand out and show that you have expert knowledge, and a clear and succinct message.

Mon 29
Designing Conference Posters (Engineering RDC) [Places] 16:00 - 17:00 Department of Engineering, Library, North Room

onference posters are a simple, visual, and effective way of sharing your research. They may be presented at academic or professional conferences, Departmental events, or educational events for the general public. A well-designed poster allows you to communicate information about your work in a concise and appealing manner, and engage with colleagues, peers and others in a conversational setting.

Creating a conference poster is a balancing act between including enough detail to effectively describe your work, and keeping it visually attractive and minimal enough that people can understand at least the main points at a glance.

This module will help you create effective conference posters and introduce key design principles.

Publishing in Journals (Engineering RDC) [Places] 11:00 - 12:00 West Hub, West Room 1

Publishing is a key part of any academic career: it is the main way researchers share their research findings with colleagues and the world at large, so that knowledge develops over time and helps to change policy and practice.

Through publishing, you will receive feedback on your work and develop your ideas further. In addition, a strong publication record is also important in developing your reputation and career.
