Asking and Responding to Questions

  • A. S. Wechsler

Abstract

Scientific societies usually afford authors the opportunity to present their work in the format of a 10-minute talk. A program committee has invariably reviewed the work on the basis of submitted abstracts and has chosen it because it will inform the audience or provoke discussion. Members of the audience are encouraged to ask the speaker questions at the conclusion of the talk, and those who are knowledgeable about the work or the field have an obligation to make constructive comments and pose appropriate questions.
