If you have the means, you’re always welcome to help us make THINK more inclusive by donating a scholarship!

We encourage you to base your activity on our Hot topic 2023:

This is the perfect theme to juxtapose and compare perpendicular ideas. Bring us your best talk to complement this year’s topic. ⏊ If you need another angle, you can always supplement yours with a joint talk. // In any case we’re sure your brilliant minds will be able to provide us with a 360 view. ⃝

This topic prompt is in no way mandatory, so if there is really no way to force a connection with a topic you’re passionate about, no worries, we value your knowledge above anything else! β˜€οΈ

The three formats:

  • Individual talk of 30 minutes (15-20 min talk + debate)
  • Workshop is a free format of up to 60 minutes.
  • Joint talk, where you team up with another conference participant to talk about a common theme, from two different scientific perspectives lasting 60 minutes in total (30-40 min talk + debate).
