Alumni to our international conference InSITE (http://InSITE.nu) often mention the conference as among the best organized and most supportive conference they have attended.
Typically, the conference begins with optional pre-conference networking opportunities that combine seeing the country, often with talks on country-specific topics of interest, with the hugely important chance to network with potential future research collaborators. The networking enables building the trust relationships needed to sustain long-distance research collaboration.
The conference itself combines tracks of presentations of research papers, plenary sessions that provide for keynote speakers and mini-workshops on topics related to your professional development.
The conference also includes a day of professional development workshops.
