Rapid Fire Presentations

What are Rapid Fire Presentations? Rapid Fire-style presentations have become a popular means of sharing ideas. This presentation style has a number of names with slight variations in format, including: Pechu Kucha, Ignite Talk, Lightning Round, and Speedy Presentation. Essentially, each presenter has only five minutes to succinctly share the essence of their research, and to encourage listeners to go up to their poster during the Poster Session that follows. All poster presenters will be eligible to introduce their research to the audience during the hour-long rapid fire session. You will have the option to use one PowerPoint slide as a background, that will include your poster number for the audience to see.
