Writing papers and giving talks are key skills for any researcher, but they aren’t easy. In this presentation, I’ll describe simple guidelines that I follow for giving talks, which I think may be useful to you too. I don’t have all the answers—far from it! Please also see my talks on how to write a great research paper and how to write a great research proposal.
- The paper
- Powerpoint slides of the talk [updated 2016]: PDF PPT (you should feel free to repurpose these slides for your own use as long as you acknowledge ownership)
- Other languages
- Emery Berger’s helpful guide for session chairs.
- Nick Nethercote also has a useful 2-page guide about giving a talk
