In June our resource of the month was about resources which give you tips on how to survive conferences.
The first resource we suggested that can give you conference survival tips was other people’s blog posts.
Please let us know if you find any other useful blogs

The experience of attending a conference can be enhanced by following the conference’s twitter #tag. This can be useful to follow any discussions that are taking place or to find out what happened in sessions that you were unable to attend. If you are unable to attend a conference you can still follow the #tag to find out what is taking place.
This week our #ResourceOfTheMonth is conference #tags You can tweet your thoughts about the conference and its presenters and follow what others are tweeting about. This is particularly useful if there are multiple parallel sessions running that you would like to attend

To prepare before you attend a conference you could read some journal articles about how to survive at a conference.
This week as part of our #ResourceOfTheMonth series we are highlighting journal articles that have been written about surviving conferences. Here is a "Conference Survival Guide" by Tatiana P. Soares da Costa https://t.co/d1QXNvV6lz

Our final resource of the month on surviving conferences was to talk to colleagues about their experiences and to ask them for their tips.
Finally in our #ResourceOfTheMonth series about surviving conferences we suggest that you ask others for their one piece of advice. Our advice is to read the abstracts of sessions and not just select which sessions to attend from the title alone.
Please share your tips with us
