How can you maximize your time at a scientific meeting?
Present your work!
Learning about the latest research by watching scientific presentations is only one part of attending an APS meeting. Another part is presenting your own work. The easiest way to tell people about your research is to present a talk or a poster showcasing it!

Meet Others in Your Field
Another way to discuss your work is to attend sessions related to your research. Talk to the presenters, either during the Q&A sessions or after the sessions, about how your work relates to theirs. For most people, the personal interaction in sessions is the most important part of a meeting. It's fine to miss a few presentations so that you can talk with other physicists, friends or acquaintances.
