Academic competition, entertaining presentations: Six young scientists from Germany and Russia will have no more than ten minutes time to present their current research results to an enthusiastic audience. Anything goes, whether common presentation techniques or expressive dance, whether free speech or experiments on the stage - the slammer has the choice. What counts is a hands-on and entertaining presentation, because in the end the audience will vote the slam champion of the evening.
The organisers invite all young scientists – from every discipline – to apply for participation in the science slam in September. Application videos must nor be longer than two minutes.
This is already the third time the German-Russian Forum organises an international science slam. It is organised in cooperation with the team of scienceslam.net and promoted by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
Both the opening two years ago in Hanover as well as the tour last year in Moscow were a great success.
Date: 13 September 2013, Berlin
Framework programme and pre-selection: German-Russian Slammers Meeting from 9 to 14 September, Berlin
If you want slam, present yourself with a short (max. 2 min) video on the homepage of the German-Russian Forum. A bilateral jury selects the best applications. Six German and six Russian scientists will be invited to the Slammers Meeting in Berlin and take part in a four-day seminar for young scientists. In addition to coachings in presentation technology, an insight into the Berlin science scene is offered. On the third day of the seminar, a preliminary decision takes place, in which the best three German and Russian slammers for the finals are qualifying. You will slam in your native language, all lectures will be translated simultaneously.
The application deadline has been extended to 4 August 2013!
