Dear Professor Doe,


In a thank you letter to a guest speaker, or special guest, be sure to initially extend your, and the conference
organizing committee’s, sincere thanks for their attendance and talk. Statements such as: “I would like to express
my/our sincerest thank you/appreciation for….” may help with this.

Also be sure to thank the person for other contributions to the conference.

                   Chairing a conference session
                   Provided interesting and informative conversation informally at the conference banquet
                   Helped stimulate discussions after other presentations
                   Etc.

Be sure to provide information on the state of any conference publications or post-conference events to which the
person has submitted a paper.

Thank the person again in closing.

You can issue a standing invitation for the person to visit the university at any time he/she is in the neighbourhood,
and if you wish feel free to invite the person to participate in the next conference. This is not a formal invitation, and it
can be stated like: “… and we look forward to your participation again next year.”

Sincerely,
