Kicking off with an introduction to social media for scientists by @hollybik & @MiriamGoldste

All in the familiar academic format of a journal article: dx.plos.org/10.1371/journa…

So why engage in social media as an epidemiologist or public health professional?

It helps to build trust in science!

One of my many pet-peeves at conferences... The ID Badge!

Nearly 50 per cent of the Badges are flipped - as a result you end up seeing a blank card. Why don't they print names on both sides? :)

Also, the font size...so small, it is often impossible to read.
One more (I think I should create a thread/blog-post on this :))

Organizers (hotels) in India need to provide plenty of strong (black) coffee! The heavy conference food and boring talks/panels are recipes for sleep.

Good caffeine is available in plenty in U.S. conferences😉
A note for 'Panel Moderators' - Please just 'moderate'! And speak in moderation :) ... Ideally, as little as possible.

Your job is to ask good questions and get the panelists to speak. Not 'grandstand'. Interrupt, only if the panelist is going on for too long, or off-topic.

Des responsabilités aussi pour @pintofscienceFR. 👩‍🔬🍺 Ce sont 18 #conférences dans 6 #bars différents, sur diverses thématiques : des neurosciences aux sciences politiques, en passant par la physique et les sciences de la terre, il y en aura pour tous les goûts ! 😍
Notre #job : trouver des chercheurs et leurs doctorants, les briefer sur le festival, trouver des bars en capacité d’accueillir l’événement… et tout ça depuis octobre ! @pintofscienceFR
Nous avons été très bien accueillis au sein de l’équipe de bénévoles, certains sont expérimentés, pour d’autres c’est également leur première édition. Nous avons pu partager et échanger sur nos #expériences.😊🙃

Tips to #conferences offering #diversity tickets (THREAD)

1) Make it clear on your ticketing page that you offer diversity tickets.

2) Be specific about what you are offering e.g. is travel and accommodation incuded?

3) Be clear on how you decide on allocation of tickets.
4) Set expectations on when the applicant can expect a response and in what form.

5) Add your event to diversitytickets.org
6.1) Give applicants a reply ASAP - if it's a NO they may still want to buy a paid ticket during the early bird pricing window

6.2) Give applicants a reply ASAP - if it's a YES they will also need to book travel and accommodation - making them wait exposes them to higher costs
