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.

This event is sponsored by AIP, and its educational organizations, Society of Physics Students and Sigma Pi Sigma.
