For researchers, conferences are chapters with many meanings. First, a conference is an opportunity to show others about your research results. It is also a place of learning where you can find out the latest trends of research by touching the results of other people’s research. It is also a place for socializing to form networks with people who do similar research. At the company level, which creates experimental tools and devices, it is also a forum for publicity. If you are a student, this is a place for future design that can help you decide your future job.

 

Nowadays, researchers have more opportunities to attend international conferences. If I had to worry about what kind of conference to attend, would it be too happy? If you have to choose between a world-famous tour or a conference in the city. After all, the number of conferences around the world has become too great. In fact, a lot of conferences are said to be open to business with the participation fee. In other words, there are many cases where only the participation fee is collected and there is no stall. The feature of these conferences is that on the same day, conferences on different topics are held simultaneously in the same place. In addition, there are many cases in which they are accepted without abstract examination. Above all, many topics that are irrelevant are discussed in one section. If you attend these conferences, you are likely to waste your time and money. So if you are planning to attend the conference, you will have no choice but to regret it. The first thing to check for that is to know who will hold the conference.

 

A UK cyber security expert, for example, attended a conference in Denmark. And less than 10 people attended the conference. The conference lasted three hours. It costs 400 pounds for the conference and 400 pounds for the plane and the accommodation. The conference was held at WASET (World Academy of Science, Engineering, and Technology). The number of conferences held at WASET is expected to reach 183 in 2018, and the event will be held until 2030. If you look at the contents, it is said that the conferences were created with little consideration of science. It is the intention to open as many conferences as possible and earn money.

 

Are you planning to attend an international conference? If so, find out who is hosting the conference. If you are wrong, you might come to an international conference and you will be blown away in a moment.
