ACA Three Minute Thesis Contest

This session is 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 and a finals round thereafter, 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.
