During the event, presenters will be placed in a breakout room and receive their assigned slides. Presenters will have five minutes to prepare a two-minute (maximum) presentation.

Winners will be selected by anonymous audience voting. First ($200), second ($100) and third ($50) place prizes will be awarded to both authors and presenters.
