The ICWSM Science Slam
A science slam is an epic scientific event where scientists compete with short talks on their research. It’s
just like a poetry slam, but with science instead of
poems. Slammers were completely free to do whatever they wanted on stage. Everything was allowed,
including slides, games — the more creative, the better! The only two rules were that the topic of the slam
had to be related to social media and the presentation
could not take more than 8 minutes. The 2017
ICWSM Science Slam was organized by David Garcia,
Ingmar Weber, Aniko Hannak, and Robert West.
