The SPI organises an elevator pitch session for early-career scientists during the Swiss Polar Day 2020, to be held on 17 April 2020 at the University of Zurich.

The elevator pitch session (3 minutes and 1 slide per speaker) will be followed by a lunch break during which the speakers can engage with the participants of the conference. Tables will be arranged in the foyer where the lunch will take place for the speakers to further present their research to the audience of the conference and exchange with members of the Swiss polar community. There will however be no posters.

If you are interested in presenting your research, please let us know until 15 March with a brief outline of your talk (max 400 words). We very much hope you find this opportunity interesting and will agree to present your research during the event.

A selection panel will select the talks on the basis of scientific merit. The SPI will inform applicants by the end of March.
Submissions have to be sent to secretariat.spi@epfl.ch. Resources for preparing an elevator pitch presentation can at:
