Scientific seminars follow ancient routines. The speaker speaks for his allocated time plus a generous 15% bonus and then the big-shots in the first row ask a few questions. But have you ever noticed that they always ask the same questions? It’s called experience, i.e., they made up their question some 20 years ago. Time for you to get up to speed and participate with your own highly original questions! Don’t have an idea what to ask? Just select one of the generic categories offered in the PDF file below, and pay attention for some 5 minutes before napping off. Try different questions until you find the one that suits you best! Before you even recognize you will sit in the first row, being a proud member of the establishment!
