The Do's and Don'ts of International Collaborations
Stefan Lohmander, MD, PhD - Lund University

Being involved in international collaborations can be both rewarding and challenging, more so if you are the designated YI first author to write the manuscript. The culture of science and writing differs across disciplines, countries, groups, and journals. I will provide you with some tips and tricks to bridge these gaps, make (almost) everyone happy, and for you to have a rewarding experience in your endeavor.

From PhD to Professor-What I Know Now That I Wish I Knew Then 
Flavia Cicuttini, MBBS, PhD, FRACP - Monash University

There are no substitutes for hard work, determination and resilience. It is a rare person that succeeds without these. Forward planning and being strategic in development of skills and expertise is important in order to stay at the forefront of emerging problems. Although a plan is important, flexibility and the ability to seize opportunities can speed up the road to success.  Personal attributes of integrity, reliability and respect for others are important in order to build strong, sustainable collaborations and teams. Working out what you want out of life and integrating career with other aspects of life is important for overall personal life satisfaction. This can be challenging and often requires a lot of self-confidence as one juggles the many competing interests. The saying  ‘ You can have it all, but not all at the same time’ has a lot of truth in it. At the end of the day, whatever else happens, make sure you enjoy the journey without too many regrets! That is the ultimate success
