Pecha Kucha presentations

Now in our second year for this category, EPIC solicits Pecha Kucha (pronounced: "peh-cha-ku-cha'') presentations. An informal, engaging and highly visual presentation of 20 slides, each one exactly 20 seconds, for a total presentation time of 6 minutes, 40 seconds. Pecha Kucha presentations at EPIC are intended to communicate quickly and efficiently various ideas related to Ethnography EVOLUTION / REVOLUTION. We encourage submissions that are visually engaging, loaded with thought provoking content and provide a strong point of view on a specific topic related to the conference theme.

[Extended] Proposal submission deadline May 15, 2011


Submissions should include a single page describing the proposed Pecha Kucha concept; a brief 150-word description of the concept; and at least five slides which you intend to use as visuals in the presentation. This information should convey to reviewers what is the main point to be communicated and how it will be communicated.


In case of acceptance, you will be required to present live to all EPIC2011 attendees.
