Presenting Your Work and Yourself to the World: A Focus on Oral Communications

One key to success in academe and industry is a person's ability to communicate with those around her. The relevance of excellent technical work must be actively revealed and not left to others. A mathematician enhances her technical achievement by developing additional organizational talents such as public speaking. A successful mathematician must be able to communicate in both informal and formal settings.

This workshop will focus on how to develop the speaking skills and prepare for technical presentations that can be given comfortably and with confidence.

The intended audience are graduate students or recent graduates who are at the beginning of their careers. The technical content will be assumed and will not be discussed. Speakers will discuss the construction of a presentation, preparation of the slides, as well as practical tips.

Organizer: Rosemary E. Chang
Silicon Graphics Computer Systems
