What is IGNITE?

Imagine that you’re in front of an excited audience made up of your friends and colleagues about to present a 5-minute talk on the topic you are most passionate about. You’ve brought 20 slides, which advance every 15 seconds whether you are ready or not. You have a few last-minute butterflies, but off you go—and the crowd loves it. Welcome to IGNITE!

How can you Participate?

SAEM is inviting submissions for presenters at the fourth annual IGNITE! SAEM sessions. Ideas can be submitted through the dedicated IGNITE! SAEM submission page starting November 1. Please submit a summary, 250 words or less, describing what will be presented. 

Please note that the presentations will be 5 minutes long, with your 20 slides advancing automatically every 15 seconds, followed by 2 minutes for questions. Presentations must be prepared for a PC using PowerPoint. Keep it exciting and fun – for examples, please see http://igniteshow.com/. Awards will be given at the end of the session for the best presentations. 

Authors will be notified in early February regarding the status of their submissions. IGNITE! submissions will not be published.
