26th International Input-Output Conference
& 8th Edition of the International School of I-O Analysis
June 25-29, 2018, Juiz de Fora, Brazil


The buddy program

Monday evening after the lecture "How to write a publishable paper - no guarantees" and before the Welcome Reception

Connect with more experienced researchers and get tips & tricks how to make the most of your IIOA conference - share your experience with the newbies


Being at a conference for the first time can be overwhelming, you don't know anyone, you don't know which presentations are relevant for you, you cannot yet connect the names of the people you cite with the faces of the people. The buddy program aims at giving you an easy start by connecting you with more experienced conference participants, who can show you around and introduce you to the IIOA crowd.
Some of you have already been at a few conferences. Please also sign up if you want to be a buddy for one or two newbies :)
