Every researcher in the Institute will have one minute to present their research. Students (especially incoming first-year students), postdocs, staff, and faculty from all islands are all strongly encouraged to participate. This format has worked well in other departments and is a lot of fun. It's a great way to see what the person in the office next to you has been slaving over for the last three years as well as to introduce new people to the department.
The format is simple. You should prepare one slide to be displayed by the projector. The slide must be in Adobe PDF. We will stitch these slides together into a single presentation. After one minute, Ding!, and its on to the next speaker.
Please avoid any bells and whistles in your slide that may not translate well to the presentation machine. Include your name and email address on your slide so that we can easily identify you. You are also encouraged to include a picture of your face on the slide for identification purposes.
Raja will be collating the slides. Submission instructions will follow shortly. The submission deadline will be the evening of Sept. 11.
