About the different types of talks
In addition, you need to precise if you want to present an introduction or a specialty talk.
Length: 25 min + 5 min questions
Goal: To present a pedagogical introduction to a subject (typically related to but not on your project) in order to make it interesting for everyone. Typical subjects requiring an introduction talk include, but are not restricted to: superconducting qubits, semiconductor qubits, optical qubits and communication, ion trap qubits, quantum error correction, quantum algorithms.
Length: 12 min + 3 min questions
Goal: After an introduction given by someone else, to give a specialized talk about your research.
According to the propositions, the presentations will be grouped in themes and certain people might be asked if they want to change the type of their presentation (introduction vs specialty). An abstract submission is also an inscription. An important feature of this conference is that everyone should present, including interns and just-starting MSc/PhD students or postdocs. If you want to attend without doing a presentation, you need to fill the inscription form and provide a justification (ex.: You just started your master.). If too many abstracts are received, the selection will be based on experience. Given that one of the objectives of the conference is for people to practice giving talks, participants having the smallest amount of experience will be selected first.
The suggested language for the presentations is english. Nevertheless, presentations in french will also be accepted.
