How to Get the Most out of a Conference

Stephen Downes, Half an Hour, Nov 28, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Over the week-end I wrote a longish description of how to get the most out of a conference. There's three major types of advice: how to plan and prepare your travel, how to submit a proposal and make a presentation, and how to benefit most from the presentations and interactions at the conference. The post is intended mostly for people without a lot of experience (I've provided an MS-Word and PDF version for easy sharing). I hope people find it useful, and I would appreciate comments and suggestions on how to improve the paper.
