What is a Pecha Kucha Presentation?

Pecha Kucha is a presentation methodology in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes, 40 seconds in total). It is an opportunity for several presenters to share information about a research problem, project, or study with many colleagues by developing slide show presentations. Presenters may include printed materials or handouts, so long as the presentation remains under 6:40. A few minutes will be designated on either side of the presentation for set-up/break-down of materials.


Application Deadline

The deadline for submitting an application is August 29, 2014. The proposals will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the Conference Program Committee, and you will be notified of acceptance by September 17, 2014.
