Flash Talk

At the Flash Talk sessions predocs have the opportunity to present their own research to a very diverse audience and to win a wonderful gift.

If you don’t want to spoil this chance we strongly suggest:

Your talk must be dynamic and educative. Temember that you are in front of a broad audience who might not be familiarized with your work. Your goal is to clearly explain what do you do, how and why. We recommend you to avoid the presentation of results and publications: you’d better focus on the essence of your research, which might be more powerful to pave the way to new collaborations. Talks are short: do not use a large number of slides and do not full them with a lot of text.

Be careful with the time-duration of your talk. Once the time is over, it is over. We will shut down microphones and if necessary, even lights. The JIPI is full of activities and we need to follow the schedule. Important:
The maximum time per talk is 5 minutes.

Big advise: reherse. Present your work in a finite amount of time and to a diverse public can be very challlengin. For this reason, is convenient to practice. Rehersals will allow to to identify possible issues such as too many slides or too long/short/abstruse talk and you will feel more relaxed and ready to give the Talk.

Despite it is mandatory, we encourage the speakers to present their works in English (it is not mandatory). Talks are short and you are in front of an friendly audience. This is a very good chance to learn and improve your oral abilities.
