Thanks to Justin Taylor for highlighting this excellent post by Fred Sanders, “How To Give an ETS Conference Paper.” All first-timers should read Sanders’ advice very carefully and get to work implementing these suggestions before next week. There’s still plenty of time.
Here’s Sanders’ outline:
1. Write the kind of paper you wish somebody would give.
2. Read, but read well.
3. Keep to your time.
4. Q&A Is Your Friend.
5. Use the internet to distribute full copies.
6. Try out new ideas.
Now go read the rest here.
