In 2023, the conference took place in Boston, MA from August 25 to 27. The DWIH team was at the conference to support the GAIN team with event logistics. Additionally, Head of Programs Dr. Jan Lüdert was involved in at least two program points:

  • Saturday, 5:15 – 6:45PM: co-moderation of the GAIN23 Science Slam and Award Ceremony with Aline Gottlieb (in English)

Welcome on stage: the GAIN Science Slam is all about science communication. A group of international researchers from various fields presented their findings in a five-minute pitch in front of the GAIN23 audience. The objective was to impart current research results to a diverse audience in an understandable and entertaining way. The GAIN audience was also the Science Slam Jury.

  • Sunday, 8:00 – 8:45AM: Workshop: Transforming your research into a publication (in German) with Dr. Max Vögeler (Elsevier Publishing)

You finished your Ph.D. and are thinking of turning your dissertation into a book? Then this interactive workshop is for you. Your Ph.D. thesis is an important milestone as it becomes your first major piece of research which helps you to start building a reputation in academia. Working on your first major publication based on your doctoral research is something that you may want to do during a post-doc fellowship or consider already when completing your Ph.D.

This workshop was intended to help you turn your doctoral thesis into a publishable book or other kind of publication. This, as this workshop uncovers, requires some adjustments and adaptation of the content and style of your Ph.D. thesis.

Although no single rule exists the workshop acts as a guide in the process of getting a publishable book out of your Ph.D., some elements usually distinguish a typical doctoral thesis from a monograph, a chapter in an edited volume, or a journal article.
