Are you tired of regular, conventional scientific oral presentations? If the answer is yes, you now have the chance to prove that scientific presentations and your research are exciting by standing up and presenting your research with an entertaining performance at the first ISEE-Science Slam in Rome!!! If the answer is no, you might want to take on a fresh challenge anyway!

 A Science Slam is a new way of scientific communication: research results are presented in an entertaining and engaging way (take a look at the video made by Kurtis Baute, the winner of the 2014 EURAXESS science slam competition: The type of entertainment is totally up to the presenter. With your Slam-presentation, you should aim to: 1) provide a comprehensive presentation of your research and 2) entertain the audience. The audience will decide who gets awarded the best science slammer!
