Leave the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown on deluxe coaches for a fully guided tour covering the city’s four centuries of art, architecture, and influences that made it the second largest city on the east coast. You will hear stories of the people, places, and events beginning before 1776 that made Colonial Philadelphia the seat of government for the young nation and one of the largest English speaking cities in the world.
The Science Slam will be a a short presentation competition in which scientific topics, research results, latest technologies, etc. are presented via visual and other means. Each presenter will have 5 minutes total to enter the stage and fascinate, captivate, stun, or otherwise impress the audience. The audience will judge the presentations and at the end, someone will be crowned the “Master of SIMB Slam.” This Rapid Fire Science Slam will be composed of 25 presenters who will be chosen from accepted poster submissions to present their work on three slides, in five minutes. There will be no questions and no comments. This is an opportunity to preview your poster to the entire meeting and get your colleagues excited to see your work.
