Three minute thesis competition


We will be running a competition for current doctoral students in which we will ask them to present their doctoral research in no longer than three minutes using no more than three overhead slides.

This will challenge their presentation skills and give them an excellent opportunity to present their work to a general but technical audience – something that all researchers should be able to do if they are to communicate the importance and excitement of their work effectively.

All E-MRS delegates are invited to attend the sessions. There will be a small judging committee who will decide on which presentations are the best, based on the clarity of presentation, the quality of the science, and the level of technical understanding that the presenter demonstrates. Presentations should include details of the motivation for the research, the results achieved so far, the potential impact of the work, and what conclusions have been drawn to date.

A small prize will be offered to the best presentation.

The Thesis competition will be held on 22nd September 2021, Wednesday, 16:30-18:30.

We hope students will be enthusiastic about taking part in this competition and look forward to some exciting presentations.

Registration forms (to be downloaded from the conference website) should be sent to by 15th July 2021.
