Date/TimeTuesday, March 10, 10:20 - 11:20

3MT®, founded by the University of Queensland in 2008, is an academic competition that cultivates students’ presentation and research communication skills and challenges them to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience with one static slide. It’s an amazing experience for students to show their presentation skills and be rewarded for their research idea and their motivation in a simple and interesting way.

The competition is open to all students attending M2GARSS. There will be two stages in the competition.

  1. Submission of a 5-minute video describing the thesis/research topic by uploading it to a video platform (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) or to a site accessible only by the evaluation committee with a private URL and filling this form here indicating the video URL by February 1, 2020.

    The top 10 submissions will be selected by February 15, 2020 and invited to the final round of the competition at M2GARSS. The judging criteria for this phase are presentation skills (40%), scientific quality (40%) and originality (20%) of the topic presented.

  2. Final presentation of the three minutes to an audience and adjudicating panel during M2GARSS. The top 3 presentations will be selected and will be awarded at the conference banquet with exciting prizes that will be announced soon and “Best 3MT® award” certificate from GRSS.
