We plan to host a science slam during our social event program. Take part with your accepted paper and excite the audience. Each participant can present his research topic or paper idea within ten minutes in an exciting and motivational way. The aim is to entertain the audience and, possibly, have them learn something about your topic as well.

When the talks are finished, the audience rates the presentations by clapping loudness and you might actually win something beyond the hearts of the audience.
