For the first time ever, the SIPS conference will feature a Science Slam, organized and hosted by our Early Career Researchers, including prizes for the best three presentations!
We are looking for speakers up to 6 years after finishing their PhD who are either already passionate about science communication or just interested in trying out out something new. Professors and PIs, please encourage your PhD students and Postdocs to seize this unique opportunity. In case you are interested, but are not sure where to start or how to create such a presentation, check out our Summer School where we will feature a workshop on how to learn exactly that!
Ten selected applicants will present their work to the SIPS attendees in only 3 minutes. But there is one catch: Your presentation has to be easily understandable for everyone. With this science slam, we want to showcase the often complex and specific work that we do, but make it accessible to people outside your field – and a great way to start is to practice it with people in your field! There are no bounds to how you want to use your three minutes – you can be as creative as you like (e.g. bring props, use sounds, visuals, etc.). After your presentation, the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions for two minutes. The best three presentations will be announced and receive their prizes at the SIPS closing session on Saturday May 13th.
