Abstract

This chapter will discuss some of the reasons behind the current flourishing of academic conferences as a social phenomenon, the related nomenclature, and their importance in establishing an academic identity or presence. We will also look at the typical structure of a conference and offer some pre-conference considerations for both presenters and general participants.
