A Twitter conference is an online way to share your research and network with colleagues conferencing from wherever home means to you.
Plus, registration & participation is 100% FREE!
We would like to remind applicants that whilst we encourage as many as possible to attend this event, presenters must be affiliated within the DICE community. This includes all current postgraduate students, alumni, honorary & associate members, advisory board members, & staff.
Each presenter will be given 15 minutes to present six tweets about their research. To do so they can use a combination of text, photos, infographics, graphs, GIFs and videos (the more creative the better!).
Using the hashtag #DICECON20 anyone around the world can tune in throughout the conference making it a great way to communicate your work outside of the scientific community. Therefore please stick around to answer questions LIVE!
Registration is now closed. We will be in touch with all presenters shortly.
We encourage everyone to take part in the conference, attending presentations and asking questions, as the event is free and open to all!
As the conference takes place on Twitter you will need an active account. Check out https://help.twitter.com/en/twitter-guide for guidance in setting up a new account & we recommend following @DICE_Kent, @UniKentSAC, @UniKent to get started.
What is a Twitter Conference?
How does it work?
You have 6 tweets (max. 280 characters each) to explain your topic in a twitter thread. Each tweet should be numbered 1-6 and should include the hashtag #DICECON20. We also encourage presenters to use their first tweet to introduce their research topic and to add other relevant hashtags including the hashtag specific to your conference session (e.g. #Peeps&Nature) and to acknowledge their funding organisations (e.g. #wellbeing, @ARIES_DTP).
The rest is up to you. Should you want to you may want to stick to Intro-Methods-Results-Discussion or you might have something else in mind.
As this conference is open to the public to participant we encourage presenters to think about their potential audience but most of all we hope to see the wonderful diversity of research and creativity DICE has to offer!
