How to attend big conferences: have a focus

Over at Sociobiology Joan Strassman has a great post on how to choose talks at big conferences like the ESA Annual Meeting. This is something we’ve talked about on this blog before, but no one ever brought up Joan’s excellent suggestion: have a focus. That is, try to see as many talks as you can in a particular area that you want to learn more about. This is a great way to get up to speed on the current state of play in that area.
