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.

YSIG leadership have carefully selected a diverse range of presenters from various academic disciplines, each offering a unique perspective on their research topics. By attending these concise and engaging talks, you will have the chance to discover groundbreaking research, gain valuable insights, and expand your knowledge in a short amount of time.

We believe that the 3MT presentations will be a highlight of the conference, offering an excellent opportunity for networking, learning, and discovering innovative research across different fields. Whether you are an early-career researcher or an established professional, attending these presentations will undoubtedly provide valuable insights and spark interesting discussions.
