Synthetic Biology Slam @ SB6.0
Monday, July 8, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
What is Your Vision for the Future of Synthetic Biology?
Have a big idea? Throw it down at the third Synthetic Biology Slam: an evening of fast-paced creative talks, plentiful discussion and real-time building of a roadmap for the future of synthetic biology. Meet other innovative thinkers, get feedback, and find new ideas and partners for good work that lies ahead.
The Slam will be held on July 8th (the evening before SB6.0) at Imperial College London. We will provide beverages, snacks and a stage — you will bring your best ideas on what the future holds for Synthetic Biology!
Each person will have 3 minutes to present their vision for how the field should evolve. Participants can focus on anything from applications, tools, concepts, practices - it's up to you! We welcome everything from ideas-in-the-making to more developed hypotheses and work. Everyone in the community is encouraged to participate regardless of background or career stage - all we ask is a willingness to share your ideas and enthusiasm.
Highlights from the inaugural synthetic biology slam, held at SB5.0, included over 25 presentations including a poetic take on the future of beer brewing, a vision for low-cost automation tools, a proposal for advancing public engagement, and thoughts on the policy landscape shaping the field. To see these and more, visit us online.
Don’t miss this opportunity to participate in a fun and lively evening getting to know the next generation of thinkers moving the field forward!
While we strongly encourage participation as a presenter, everyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to be a presenter, please sign-up for a 'Presenter' ticket and email an image that is representative of your idea to email@example.com. Your image will be projected during your slot if you are selected to present. You will be contacted directly if you are selected to present.
