On these responses, I see the possibilities of collegial conversations
with brandy, cigars, and a non-sexist approach to reaching a consensus.
Sounds very civilized.  As to scientific meetings, consult O'Brian's
comments on pp. 22-23 of H.M.S. Surprise [1973, W. W. Norton, NY, NY].
There's another account of a presentation to the French academy in one
of O'Brian's other novels, although I don't have a precise citation.
