Why Attend

The Criminal Justice and Security conferences provide an environment for exchanging state of the art research, professional debate, inclusion of graduate students into academic community and a participant friendly atmosphere where all participants benefit from sharing knowledge, research results and practical experiences in the fields of criminal justice and security studies (including, police studies/police science, criminal justice studies, criminology, and other scientific disciplines). In addition, think of the following four dimensions of participation at the 2016 conference:

  1. Educational opportunities. No matter how experienced you are in research, everyone can learn. Working in research can often be isolating, and without exposure to a variety of points of view, we can miss new ideas and trends that can impact future results. The educational aspect of a conference can expose you to new ways of conducting your research and help you discover how to be more productive.
  2. Networking with peers. Criminology and criminal justice conferences provide a great opportunity to network. Often participants from other regions can become valuable resources for referrals and best-practices. Collaboration is the way to approach networking. While there are those whose intentions can be suspect, most people can help each other uncover ideas and spark inspiration when they get to know each other on a personal level.
  3. Position yourself as an expert. When you are active in work, you can develop a reputation as an expert to your peers and others. Those who are engaged over the long term are often asked to speak at the events and to write articles for their publications. So, prove yourself.
  4. Have fun. Being a researcher or practitioner in criminal justice and criminology should be rewarding and also fun. All work and no play can get old fast. Criminal Justice and criminology conferences can add a layer of enjoyment to managing your career growth by mixing a social aspect into your learning. Never underestimate the power of a little fun mixed with some interesting people! We also recommend you to explore the country where the conference is held.
