IGNITE! is a fun and fast-paced speaking competition at the SAEM Annual Meeting. Each IGNITE talk is five minutes long with 20 automatically advancing slides.

Because of its unique format, IGNITE talks are highly energetic, captivating, and engaging. Speakers are selected from all levels of training from all parts of the country.

A panel of judges selects a "Best of IGNITE!" winner from each IGNITE session. An "Audience Choice Award" is also given at each session based on audience polling. Because there are no limitations on submission topics, you will be exposed to all sorts of interesting issues in EM. Speakers in the past have talked about their experiences in disaster relief, the role of machine learning in EM, and challenged core practices in EM critical care and education.
