It’s probably one of the most painful bits of organizing a workshop or conference: rejecting good papers. The solution? A follow-up workshop or conference and hoping that the rejected presenters will submit again.
How to get the most out of your conference experience
My colleagues at the NCCR on the move have created this excellent video on how to get the most out of your conference experience.

Read Your Manuscript Aloud
No, I don’t mean you should read your paper at a conference, that’s just too boring to listen to (so even if you have something interesting to say, we might not be paying attention). You should read your manuscript aloud before submitting it to a journal (or an abstract before you submit it to a conference). Reading aloud is quite useful to check the manuscript because doing so slows you down: you read it more carefully — and you might spot things you want to change.
