ACA Three Minute Thesis Contest

Round One: Sunday, 7/21/2019 @ 12:00 PM | NKCC

Round Two: Monday, 7/22/2019 @ 12:00 PM | NKCC

These sessions are fully populated by accepted abstracts submitted to all scientific sessions by young scientists including postdoctoral, graduate, and undergraduate students. Authors will present a 3-minute thesis talk that gives a broad overview of key discoveries, methods, and/or applications of their research while minimizing technical language. Therefore, these sessions will be accessible to a general audience and provide a rapid overview of the impact young scientists have on the field of crystallography. Each presentation is 3 minutes with 1 powerpoint slide and no questions. The 3-minute thesis competition will run parallel qualifying rounds on Sunday July 21 and a finals round on Monday July 22 where top presenters will compete for prizes. Presenters will also give their full poster or oral presentation in the session to which their abstract was originally accepted.
