Bay Area Research SLAM

The Bay Area Research SLAM is a collaboration between the Bay Area's National Labs:  Berkeley, Livermore, Sandia, and SLAC. The SLAM is a competition where contestants give a three-minute presentation, with only one slide, describing their research to a live audience at a level that non-scientists can understand. There are 12 contestants, made up of postdocs, research associates and staff from the Bay Area labs who completed their PhDs less than six years ago. Light refreshments will be served.

Join us at the Kavli Building or online. Registration is required if you plan to attend the lecture in person.

We will also be streaming the competition live on our YouTube page. You do not need to register if you plan to watch online.
