We work hard to put together an excellent academic programme of plenary and featured sessions, topical panels, workshops and forums, but the heart of any academic conference is, of course, the parallel sessions during which the majority of delegates present their papers, then engage in discussion and receive feedback from their peers.
The responses indicate that consistent high standards are maintained during this part of the conference. 86% of respondents to the ACSS/ACSEE/AGen 2016 feedback survey said they were satisfied with the quality of the parallel sessions, with 21% reporting them to be "very good". 38% responded that they were "good" and 27% stated "fair".
Human interaction is at the source of all value creation, and our academic connections provide us with a community of knowledge. Conferences provide an excellent opportunity for academics to expand the personal and professional networks necessary for a successful career.
