This years EuroSTAR 2013 theme – Questioning Testing
I was a speaker at last years EuroSTAR and I am still enthusiastic and proud to have been there. Being a speaker adds very much to the experience and since I believe I have still more to share with the community I plan to enter for a talk in this years event. Something I can recommend to everybody willing to learn, share and invest the necessary time.
Sending in a good abstract is however not so easy and needs next to having a good idea also the ability to write a good proposal. Last December, to share how we managed to write proposals that allowed us to go to many of conferences as a speaker Huib Schoots, Derk-Jan de Grood and I held a short workshop on proposal writing. Derk-Jan wrote a small blog post about it. I am continuing some of that effort in this post.
Last week Anne-Marie Charrett was so kind to review one my proposals and give me some good tips. During that session I also showed her a mind map that I had made in while preparing. At some point during our session she pointed out to me that perhaps it was a good idea to share the mind map with the community. I hadn’t really thought of it myself but it immediately struck me as a good idea. So to help you on your way, and even at the risk of bringing in competition, I would like to share with you the mind map that I made while preparing my proposal. It summarizes the information that Michael Bolton and Allan Richardson shared on writing an abstract.
So good luck and maybe see you there!
