9780521589192: Organizing Scientific Meetings

In spite of new, technologically advanced means of communication, the demand for face-to-face interaction among scientists is as great as ever. In this concise, yet thorough work, the author offers invaluable guidance for organizers of all sizes of scientific meetings. With good humor and attention to detail, the author covers all critical issues that a meeting organizer must address, including program development, site and participant selection, and budget management. Throughout, author Epple, a veteran of hundreds of meetings, draws attention to many seemingly small, but crucial aspects of meeting planning ranging from name tags to fund raising. This resource will prove to be an indispensable tool for meeting organizers.

Book Description:

Despite the "information revolution", there is a continuing need for personal interactions between scientists. As a result, both the number and types of scientific meetings continue to increase. This book, the first one comprehensively dealing with the topic, provides invaluable guidance to persons planning to organize a scientific event, be it a local conference or a large international congress. It points out many pitfalls and offers solutions to common problems. The topics covered include selection of venue, timing, speaker selection, social functions and fund raising with checklists provided.

From the Back Cover:

Dealing with virtually all aspects of scientific meetings, August Epple gives invaluable guidance for prospective organizers. He covers events from local afternoon Symposia to International Congresses with more than 1000 participants. He also provides insight for the tourist industry into the specific requirements that make scientific meetings different form others.
