Abstract

This empirical study aims to catalogue 99 dynamics one is likely to observe in leading conferences, whatever the scholarly field. Our taxonomy employs a qualitative standard to identify 99 core irritants – also known as the ‘spirit breakers’ – that are likely to lead you to question why you ever agreed to attend the conference. We acknowledge our study’s limitations. While some speakers may be clearly identified as fitting one or more of these classes, others may only exhibit limited traits. No doubt categories can be further refined. Further research and analysis are required. Still, the study, in its present form, may enable one to reflect on his or her presentation style and skill. It may also facilitate bonding among the conference attendees, who can, for example, identify and tweet as many traits as they can for each presentation they must (or feel obliged to) attend.

Keywords: Teaching excellence, Presentation dynamic, Conferences
