When will Science Slam happen?

Em, what exactly is a Science Slam?
A Science Slam is an event, which we organize together with the Science on the Street team and the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts. At this event chosen participants will present their research in a very simple and popular-scientific manner understandable to broader public. The audience will then choose the best three presenters, which will also be awarded. See presentations from the 2018 Science slam here for more information.
So, it will be held in English?
No, good that you pointed it out! All the presentations as well as the event itself will be held in Slovene language.
My oh my, I would like to present! Is a 15min PowerPoint presentation ok?
No and no. You will be given 5 min to persuade the audience. No PPTs are allowed. You are, however, encouraged to bring any additional objects on the stage to make your presentation more interesting. This includes also one (silent) human helper. More info on how to prepare a presentation will soon be available on the Science on the Street site (link coming soon!).
What kind of topics will be chosen? Can anyone present?
Presentations are reserved for
Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhDs and PostDocs involved in research in one of the three Cutting Edge topics (Science behind the Living, Materials of the Future and Technologies for the Earth and Environment). It does not matter which institution you are working at!
