Fall 2014 Tufts Ignite
Call for Abstracts
Past Winners
The Tufts Graduate Student Council and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences are proud to present the second installation of TuftsIgnite! This is a great opportunity for graduate students to present their research in the form of an Ignite-style talk! 
Students will present their research by creating a slide deck where 15 slides will auto-advance every 20 seconds. Presentations will be 5 minutes long with group Q&A sessions after every 5 speakers. Presentations can be based on a proposal, work in progress, completed experiment, or published work, and will be judged accordingly. Presentations will be judged based on clarity, merit/relevance, methodology, and broader impact. 
Let the Tufts community here know what you’re doing, but keep it in the Ignite theme of “enlighten us, but make it quick!” The inaugural TuftsIgnite event will take place November 5 from 5-7 PM in Anderson Hall.  Food and drinks will be provided
