 Guidance for speakers 2020

We usually have more applications than capacity, so we will assess each speaker based on various factors including;
  • how well written the talk description and title is
  • how fun and engaging the format is
  • how the research may be interesting or relevant to people's day to day lives or "popular" science
  • something we might not have heard about before
  • something that is just outright different to what people might already have experienced with the Sciences
