Information for Speakers

Each talk is 20 minutes, including time for questions.
The audience ranges from undergraduates to professors in all fields of theoretical physics (meaning we're not all experts in your general subject area).
You should be able to bring your talk on USB key (PDF files only recommended if you're using our computer!) or use your own computer with the projector. If you have a Mac, please be sure to bring the appropriate adaptor. Be ready to hook up your computer or load your talk at the start of your alotted time!
