Submit your paper to conferences

Conferences provide an important opportunity to share your research with other members and professionals in your field. For early-stage research they offer a valuable chance to obtain feedback and input on your work. For work nearing completion, presenting at a conference can publicise your research and address questions to deepen the understanding of your results. IFoA holds six residential conferences a year.
