Six entertaining physicists will each explain a topic in particle physics in under 12 minutes. An audience vote decides the winner.
At this year’s ALCPG conference, the University of Oregon will host the first-ever physics slam held in the United States.
Six ILC scientists become slammers for one night. Each has only 12 minutes to explain a topic in particle physics to the residents of Eugene, Oregon. The audience votes for the clearest, most entertaining particle physics slam of the evening.
Come join the fun if you can! The event is free and open to the public. Visit the event page for more information.
