    Science Building (UA), Room 3230
    Facilitated by Umair bin Waheed, PhD

    A three-day workshop series focused on effective scientific writing. The goal is to develop participants' understanding and expertise by focusing on three key areas: writing process, readers' expectations and revision. This workshop is a great opportunity for those who are in the process of writing a scientific article to refine and develop their skills. 

    Please be advised that the last hour of the workshop is optional and the intention is to use this time for writing.
