The rules:

  • You have a maximum of eight minutes to present your research.
  • Competitors can be individuals or teams.
  • You can use any props you like – but projectors and powerpoint are forbidden.
  • The winner is declared by popular vote among the audience – criteria for judging are clarity, novelty, and especially entertainment value!
  • Informal research, like your hobby, is great, too – convince us your topic fits our theme and we’ll let you play!
  • The conference language is English.
  • The winner gets a prize on top of the bragging rights.

The logistics:

  • You send us a short concept – (150-200 words) – via online-form.
  • We will choose the best abstracts and notify the successful submitters.
