Speakers were required to present their research in PechaKuchaTM style, a fast-paced and concise format of oral presentation in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each.
A panel of 4 judges rated the presentations. All speakers showed an excellent knowledge of their fields and managed to overcome the PechaKuchaTM challenge.
The winner was Stephen Dewitt for his talk on Bayesian statistics (‘Presenting Bayesian statistics to a general audience’) and the distinction went to Andreia Calisto de Freitas for a talk on MRI (‘Seeing voices – What happens inside my head when I speak?’). Congratulations!
