Big Call For Papers - Day 1 - Coming up with ideas

Welcome to the Big Call For Papers!

We’re here to help increase your chances of being selected for one of our 2022 TestBashes.

Let’s get started!

To help guide you we’ve broken up the three weeks into three main focuses:

  • Week 1 - Coming up with and expanding your idea
  • Week 2 - Writing the first draft of your abstract
  • Week 3 - Getting feedback and submitting your abstract

At the start of each week Richard and Mark have put together a short video to explain the focus and goal and for this week the duo share tips and tricks for coming up with ideas to submit. So take a quick look at Richard and Mark’s video and then let’s begin creating ideas!
