ETS/IBR/SBL meetings are among the most interesting, stimulating, tiring, and productive times of the year for me. Attendees have different strategies for making the most of the sessions. My own philosophy is that if a paper is good it will get published, so I personally don’t rush from paper to paper. I also don’t give papers unless invited to do so (the other option is to submit paper topics). My time is usually very busy meeting with editorial committees, publishers, and board meetings.
