What is the SLAM?

The SLAM is modeled after 3 Minute Thesis and Grad Slam. The SLAM is a competition where contestants are challenged to present a compelling three minute presentation of their research in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. Competitors are allowed one PowerPoint slide, but no other resources or props.

The SLAM live event will be Thursday, September 21, 2023 from 3:00pm-4:30pm virtually, with winners announced on by 5:00pm. The slam will be live-streamed, but only those in "virtual" attendance can participate in the People's Choice voting.
