Ignite Abstract

Ignite Abstract

Description

Ignite is all about fast and fun presentations. Speakers must build their healthcare education research presentations with 20 slides, each of which is shown for 15 seconds, giving each speaker 5 minutes of fame. The presentation process compels presenters to provide the most important information efficiently. There is no fixed structure to the open narrative of the Ignite submissions, but authors can use traditional formats (innovations or research abstracts) as guidelines if they wish.

 Learn more about Ignite:

Submission Format

Each presenter will show exactly 20 images in 5:00 minutes with 15 seconds per slide. The slides must advance automatically and the presenter talks along with the images. The presenter is responsible for setting the timing in PowerPoint. Ignite abstracts are limited to 2000 characters.
