Thesis in Three

If you are a student participant at the conference, you are encouraged to participate in the Thesis-in-Three activity. As part of this activity, you have to present an overview of your thesis in a short amount of time.

The total time per presentation is 8 minutes, with 3 minutes for the presentation followed by 5 minutes of questions. This presentation is to follow the thesis-in-3 format (www.thesisin3.com). Speakers may present any number of content slides (it is recommended you use 3 slides) in 3 minutes to communicate their work.

Specific tips include:

  • Identify the core parts of your thesis/aspect of your research that you want to discuss. Don’t try and cram everything in. 
  • Keep it high level. Don’t go into too much detail – use informative and engaging graphics and try to use as little text as possible. 
  • Practice. Practice. Practice. It’s the only way to get the timing right!Bottom line: Keep it clear, concise and coherent.
