I have one tip that I learned the hard way, back when I was a young whippersnapper. Don't treat conferences like fraternity parties. It's so easy to meet a few people in the same field as you in the hotel bar, start talking shop, then realize it is 4:00a.m. and you have a $150 bar tab. Then the next day becomes pretty much a waste, as you are either too tired or hung over to actually engage in anything meaningful. It sounds obvious, but I've made this mistake, and I see others doing it at every conference I've ever attended.
