The article discusses the publication of conference papers. The reproduction of papers is a separate issue from reporting a meeting. The report is a summary of an occasion involving meeting and fraternizing with colleagues as well as information exchange and update. For taking notes on which to base one's report, it is suggested to sit at the front of the hall, to minimize risks of inaudibility of visual aids and to enable identification of speakers from the floor. Attending society events as a reporter means never sitting back to listen and learn. When a reporter attends a meeting without responsibility to report it, the sense of leisure seems overwhelming.
