You should have something truly important or unique to share and any surgical talk that profoundly challenges us to think differently on big issues or offers unique solutions to problems are encouraged.  Pivotal research or techniques may be discussed.

Every talk’s content must be original and give credit where appropriate. Speakers cannot plagiarize or impersonate other persons, living or dead.


Speakers should be able to communicate in a 10 min speaking slot.  Videos within the presentation are not permitted.
