As a new PhD researcher at an early stage of your PhD process, academic conferences are a great opportunity for you to meet new people in your field of interest, to put faces to names from publications you’ve read, to increase the awareness of new trends in your area of interest, finding out where your research stands and to gain genuine feedback.

There are lots of benefits by attending academic conferences:

  • networking
  • meeting leaders in the field, potential mentors, collaborators, and graduate students
  • growing your professional network
  • expanding your resources
  • building up your knowledge base.

Just to mention a few.

Being a PhD researcher is not easy, and to find academic conferences that fit your interest and research topic, might get overwhelming.

To make your process easier, we collected this great list of academic conferences in Europe for 2016 and 2017.
