Submitted Abstract

The fourth edition of LuxDoc’s science slam resembles a classical poetry slam, with the difference that the content of the various presentations are of an academic nature and must be part of an ongoing PhD dissertation or other academic research. Participants from all academic fields are welcome as the organizers wish to show the richness and attractiveness of academic research.Up to 8 contestants have 10 minutes each to present their academic work to a large audience. The way the contestants choose to perform is not predefined. Each participant can freely choose how to present his/her work: recite a poem, rap, sing, paint, or even dance. The only requirement is to provide a comprehensive overview of the research in a fun, entertaining and non-scientific way.One to two moderators will lead through the evening in four different languages and coordinate as well as motivate the audience and the contestants. In order to access a larger audience, the contestants may choose to deliver their presentation in English, French, German and Luxembourgish. All contestants will have as their only tool or help the audio-visual equipment offered by the organizers as well as the equipment they bring.At the end of all the performances, the audience votes for the winner by clapping and cheering. The participants are awarded with prices sponsored by LuxDoc asbl. The evening ends with a possible informal exchange between the audience and the participants who are invited to answer all questions relevant to their academic work as well as their curriculum.
