Sustainability Lightning Talks

November 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| Free

Lightning talks will be held virtually via Zoom and in-person at 107 Norman Smith Hall, UMaine.

Students will present five-minute talks on their sustainability research in Maine.

Call for Abstracts:

Lightning Talks will focus on student sustainability research in Maine. All students involved in sustainability research are encouraged to send in an abstract for a lightning talk. We especially welcome abstracts from students involved in Mitchell Center research projects including projects supported by the Mitchell Center’s Sustainability Research Grants program. A panel of Mitchell Center faculty will select up to eight presentations from the submitted abstracts.

Lightning Talk Rules: Presenters will have five-minutes for their talk. PowerPoint presentations are allowed but will be limited to 10 slides.

Abstract Submission: Abstracts should be brief (250 words or less) and must be submitted by Friday, October 29 to hallsworth@maine.edu. Abstracts should include a title, the presenter’s name and email address, and a brief description of the talk. Students will be notified of their selection no later than November 2.

Please contact Ruth at hallsworth@maine.edu if you have any questions or need additional information.
