Snap Talks

Interested in a snap talk instead?

Those registrants who would like to present a snap talk should send the following to publichealth@karstwaters.org before January 15, 2106:

1)  One sentence description of talk content.

2)  Preference for session:  public health science, geology/hydrology, or no preference.

Those presenting snap talks will have 4 minutes and one slide to highlight their most important research hypothesis, result, or remaining problem.  One minute follows for quick questions from the group.  This format is particularly appropriate for those just beginning their research and those seeking input from the community.  We seek to facilitate discussion among snap-talk and poster presenters at the evening poster sessions.
