  • Si Slam (optional only for students and post-docs)

Si-Slam’ is a unique ISOS event (started in Berlin at ISOS 2014) for young researchers (students and post-docs). The young scientists use 3 minutes of presentation time to spark excitement about their chemistry. We really believe that this event provides them a rare occasion to think of original ways to express themselves and their works, which should enhances their passion and vision for their own research life.

  2. to make all participants curious about your exciting chemistry.
  3. Use any artistic freedom to present yourself and your science!

  5. Use any original on-screen multimedia capabilities (video, sound).
  6. Your presentation will take place in plenary session: Every participant will watch you!
