The 3MT® (ThreeMinuteThesis competition) in NSGO Annual Meeting 2019
Instead of a poster exhibition, scientific work will be represented in NSGO Annual Meeting 2019 in form of a 3MT® competition. The concept was developed by the University of Queensland, which held its’ first 3MT competition in 2008. Now, over 600 Universities worldwide hold these competitions.
The purpose of a 3MT competition is to explain your research effectively in 3 minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience (for the NSGO conference, we expect all listeners to be healthcare professionals, and have basic knowledge of gynaecological cancer)

The simple rules are:

  • One single static power point slide is allowed. No slide transitions, animations, movement of any description are allowed. The slide is to be presented from the beginning of the oration
  • No additional electronic media (sound and video files) are permitted
  • No additional props (costumes, lab equipment etc) are allowed
  • Presentations are limited to a 3 minute maximum, and competitors exceeding 3 minutes will be disqualified (there will be a timer and a countdown)
  • Presentations are to be in spoken words (no song, poems, raps)
  • Presentations are commenced from the stage
  • For more information, visit https://threeminutethesis.uq.edu.au/resources

With a presentation like this, you are able to disseminate information about your research, and also improve your presentation skills. In NSGO, we also want everybody to enjoy themselves, so please take the presentation with only appropriate, but not too much seriousness. The audience will admire your presentation and courage! The winner of the competition will get a free registration to one NSGO Annual meeting during years 2020-2022.

No material or signing in is needed before the conference. We have reserved 60 minutes (which would fit approximately 15 presentations) in Thursday afternoon for this session. A signing-up list will be presented at the front desk. However, if you will present, and need a verification of an oral presentation in the conference for your employer or a grant application, please contact me and I will send you an acceptance letter.

I hope you found this call so interesting, that you definitely want to participate!
