We are introducing two exciting, potentially dangerous sessions for ASLO 2013, with the aim of stimulating discussion on the topic of the morning plenary among conference participants. These new sessions will have a format, with only three speakers in each session. Each speaker will have up to 10 slides and six (6) minutes (strictly enforced) to be speculative, creative, thought provoking, and to encourage attendees to think outside of the box on the topic of the associated plenary. Each speaker will have an additional four (4) minutes for questions. These sessions are not necessarily the venue to introduce new results. Rather they are a stage to put forth speculative ideas about how our science can affect the larger picture and to unleash your creativity to get the community talking.
Each Tick-Talk session will have one invited speaker (see below). We invite submissions from attendees for the remaining two talks for each session. Please note that presenters of Tick-Talks can still submit an abstract to a regular session.
The two Tick-Talk sessions will be:
Invited speaker: Dr. Brian Helmuth, University of South Carolina
Two time slots open to any brave souls! You will submit your Tick-Talks abstract through the regular session submission site. Select SS83 to have your abstract considered for a Tick-Talk in this session.
Invited speaker: Dr. Ken Buesseler, Woods Hole Institute for Oceanography
Two time slots open to any brave souls! Select SS84 to have your abstract considered for a Tick-Talk in this session.
