In addition to all these, conferences are typically paid for. Well, so far for me, all my conferences have been either paid for upfront or reimbursed after attendance. Which for me is like icing on a cake. So I've attended different conferences every year since when I started in 2008, except for my entry year into graduate school in 2010.
Going to conferences never feels like work because:
1. I get to travel,
2. I get constructive review of my research and
3. I get to network.
So where am I going off to in the next couple of months:
Newport, RI. The New England Society of Toxicology
Raleigh, NC. Superfund Research Program
San Jose, CA. Annual Biomedical Conference for Minority Students
There are also a couple of conferences coming up next year.
