The latest in Springer's 'Medical English' series, aimed at health care professionals who need English for their work but do not speak English on a day-to-day basis. Although much of the information provided will be useful for scientists of all backgrounds and nationalities, the book is aimed especially at non-native English-speaking physicians and biomedical scientists. It offers clear advice on a variety of topics relevant to the successful preparation and delivery of scientific presentations. Alongside guidance on the actual preparation and delivery of talks, helpful information is provided on such potential difficulties as dealing with questions, chairing sessions, and use of appropriate English. The book will offer encouragement for those embarking on a career in international science as well as practical advice on how to deal with a wide range of situations that may develop in the context of an international congress.
