The Attendee's Guide to Scientific Meetings, Part II

In December of last year, Julian Davies, Professor emeritus at the University of British Columbia and a Fellow of the Royal Society, authored an amusing post that essentially provides helpful tips on how to successfully navigate a cocktail party at a scientific meeting.

Today, in advance of the American Society for Microbiology's General Meeting in San Diego, May 23-27, he provides some good advice on how to give and not give a scientific presentation.

"...don’t read your title slide (everyone knows it); on the other hand always repeat questions clearly, especially if the audio system is poor. For one thing it gives you a little time to think of a good answer! And don’t laugh if someone goes to the microphone and when recognized by the Chair starts off by saying “I have a question…” Of course they do, or why on earth would they be in front of the microphone?"
