Welcome to the BESIII talk pages.

You can find the list of conferences and the assigned speakers or the invited talks here.

The responsibilities of the Speakers' Bureau and the Policy for selecting BES speakers are referred to the links in the BESIII organization page and therein the Management structure page. The members of the Speakers Bureau are kept updating in the committee member page.

If you want to give a talk representing the BESIII collaboration, please contact the IB member of your institute, the physics group conveners, the physics coordinators, or any of the Speakers' Bureau members for nomination. You can also send a message to the Speakers' Bureau (permanent e-mail: ), or to the current Chair Prof. Rinaldo Baldini Ferroli.

To prepare talks, you are suggested to check BESIII publication pages to find the official releasing results, including those published in journals or preliminarily released.

If you have any question about this talk pages, please contact with Rinaldo Baldini Ferroli and Shuopin Wen.

About obtaining talks and selecting speakers

  1. A speaker, who directly receives an invitation to give a BESIII talk from conference organizers, should contact the speakers’ bureau before he/she accepts the invitation. This information will be circulated in the committee for three days to collect comments. If no objections are received, the speakers’ bureau will approve the talk.
  2. When the speakers’ bureau contacts a suggested speaker, his/her IB representative will be informed at the same time. The nominee is required to obtain endorsement from his/her IB representative before taking the nomination. The IB representative is responsible for guaranteeing the speaker will give the talk.
  3. When a talk is offered to BESIII and a speaker needs to be appointed quickly (i.e. before the next speakers’ bureau meeting), the chair of the speakers’ bureau collects nominations from the speakers’ bureau members and prepares an ordered list of candidates for approval by the speakers’ bureau members. A reply is due within 3 days. Lack of a reply from a speakers’ bureau member will be taken as approval. After approval by the speakers’ bureau, the candidates are contacted following the ordered list.
  4. Once a talk has been accepted by a candidate speaker, the talk cannot be taken away from him/her to be given to another speaker.
  5. The speakers’ bureau will actively apply for BESIII talks in big and major conferences. Any help in this process is welcome.

About giving good BESIII talks

  • Advisor of graduate student or postdoc should be responsible for the quality of the talk before it goes to rehearsal, including presentation contents and speech skills.
  • Good English speaking skills are necessary for a speaker. This is an important criterium in the selection of speakers. For people who have little experience in giving talks at international conferences, more practice before the talk is suggested.
  • The rehearsal meeting is an important part of the procedure to guarantee and improve a talk's quality. Physics coordinators and appointed senior experts (such as group conveners) will attend the rehearsals, scrutinize the talk content and give advice on the speaker’s presentation.
