Launch of the Speedtalk registrations

What are speedtalks?
Speedtalks are a way to convey your passion about your (diatom) topic in ANY WAY YOU WANT.
Either talk, present, rhyme, dance, relate, describe, paint, do a micro-stand up... about a topic concerning diatoms in under 3 minutes. It is a fun way to explain your research (or other stuff about diatoms that you are anxious to share), and you can win fun prizes!
Any of you that were at Quebec know, how fun these presentations can be.

If we have whetted your appetite and you think you would want to do this fun activity in the International Diatom Symposium, please, subscribe here

If you are interested, but want more information, please write to
