Mentor Program

Mentor Program


One of ABFER’s mission is to raise the level of academic work being done by juniors in the Asia-Pacific region. This can be done more effectively if juniors interact with seniors.  This year ABFER’s Senior Fellow Prof Renee Adams and Prof Steven Davis are organizing two mentoring events at the ABFER conference to help juniors connect with seniors.

The first event is the ‘Junior and Senior Breakfast’ on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 (8:00-9:00am) in the Magnolia Room. There will be 7 tables with two seniors at each table. The seniors will be grouped by topic and juniors can sign up to have breakfast with the seniors in their field

The second event ‘Career 101 Advice’ on Thursday, May 26, 2016 (4:00-5:00pm) is a panel discussion with subsequent Q&A on navigating the refereeing and editing process. The panelist will present followed by Q&A with the audience
