Consult the instructions and specific requirements

Location: The Speakers’ Corner will be held in a common area of the conference. This is anticipated to be in the grassy area outside the conference hall, however in the event of bad weather this will take place in a communal area inside the conference facility.

Logistics: You will be provided with a soapbox and a microphone, and will be given 3-4 minutes to present your topic.

Format: Your presentation should be extremely succinct, focusing in particular on the reasons why the topic is new, important, or interesting to the research field. The presentation will then be followed by a lively but good-natured discussion with the audience and session moderator.
