How to write conference session proposals

Most of you probably already know how to do this - after all, you get your papers accepted at conferences all over the world all the time, right?

If (like me) you find your brilliant ideas trampled underfoot as often as not, read Kent Beck's advice. It may have been written over 15 years ago, but I'm certain it applies equally well today. It's also charmingly self-referential.

Kent's advice is excellent. I spend a fair amount of time on the programme committees of conferences and based on that experience I can confirm that Kent's description of both the review process and the way to grab the reviewer's attention is spot on.
