Pop-Up talks

Do you feel passionate about your research and want to tell us about it? Then sign up for this new and exciting event at Goldschmidt that is entirely organized by early-career scientists.

You are invited to give a brief 5-minute presentation in the style of a TED talk - that is getting across a well-formulated idea in an engaging way. While you can talk about your latest data in a formal way in the other sessions at Goldschmidt, here we encourage you to think big! Tell us about any aspect of your research that you feel passionate about and particularly enjoy in a casual and engaging way. That can be the wider impact of your research, the future of geochemistry, or any other interesting aspect you have learnt and experienced in your student life so far and that you want to share with us. You can find some examples here.

How you want to present your talk is completely up to you! Whereas classic Powerpoint presentations are also possible, we especially encourage nonstandard presentations (e.g., a single image, video, music, poetry, anything you want!). Here you can get really creative to get your message across! These can be either individual presentations or you can do them in a team. The only aspect we will be very strict about is the 5-minute time limit!

So why should you participate? This is a great opportunity to spread the passion about your research in a fun and friendly environment! And, even better, without an abstract fee!

Who is allowed to give a talk? Only students! But everybody is welcome to attend the session.

If you are interested in participating in this new and exciting event, please send us an email with the title of your talk and how you would like to present it at popup-talks@goldschmidt.info before the 30th of June.

This will allow us to schedule the necessary time and space. Due to potential limitations, acceptance will be on a first-come-first-served basis. We will contact you with more information once the deadline has passed.

If you have any questions, please contact us at popup-talks@goldschmidt.info.
