We are excited to announce that this December 6th 2017 we will hold the 3rd Annual UTM Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition! This event is where graduate students and post-docs from all departments, faculties and graduate programs present their research in a short competition. The event will be held in room IB-140, starting at 3:00 pm.

Each graduate student and post-doc will have three minutes and only one static slide to present their research to an audience from all academic backgrounds.

The guest speaker this year is Professor Gary Crawford, Interim Chair, Department of Anthropology. His talk is titled, "From the Beginning of Rice Farming to Ainu Identity: Lessons from the World of Archaeology."

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three presenters:

1st prize - $300

One runner-up prize - $100

One Post-doctoral Fellow prize - $100

We encourage all graduate students to participate, earn valuable experience and add on to their CVs.

You can register for the competition here. If you would like to attend, but aren't presenting, please RSVP here.

Once you have registered, we will send out detailed rules for the competition, but you can check out the 3MT site for more information: http://threeminutethesis.org/.
