The audience was big, good and kind. One of the parallel sessions was in French, which meant many people joined the remaining two, mine included.
I managed to do it on time and passing the message I had: my early stages of research, with the problem and the sketch of the research methodology to tackle it.
It was my first presentation of a scientific paper and that already leaves me happy enough. Better still, I manage to interest a few people about my subject and networked with a lot more, who already gave me hints and tips for further development.
Now I’m looking forward to working harder and presenting the follow-up – which will be the buildup, if I think in terms of thesis research.
The job is done. Now it’s time for strolling, enjoying the city and having a De Koninck.
