Three Minute Thesis (3MT ®) Competition

The IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society is organizing a 3MT® competition at LAGIRS. It is an academic competition founded by the University of Queensland in 2008, which cultivates students’ presentation and research communication skills and challenges them to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience with one static slide.

The competition is open to all students attending the conference, and in a research-based masters or doctoral program i.e. a program in which a final thesis is needed to graduate. It’s an amazing experience for students to show their presentation skills and be rewarded for their research idea and their motivation in a simple and interesting way.

If you would like to take the challenge to present your research in 3 minutes, you need to fill out this form indicating your thesis topic starting from Monday, February 24 at 14:00 CLST. The application is based on a first-come, first-served principle. The 10 first applications will be automatically selected and invited to present their 3MT to an audience and adjudicating panel at LAGIRS.

The rules and judging criteria are those of the traditional 3MT competition as noted below. The top 3 presentations will be selected and will be awarded at the conference banquet with exciting prizes in the value of 500$, 300$ and 200$ and certificates from GRSS.
