You'll first want to find out which Preliminary Round to sign up for by checking out the schedule here. Your group is determined by which home department you are in. If you have any questions about which group you should pick, you can email Shawn Warner.
Next, fill out the Presenter Sign-Up Form by the priority deadline of February 16. You'll need to know the title of your talk when you sign up. We'll also ask about your availability to participate in our Final Round events should you be selected as a Finalist.
While we will strive to maintain the preliminary schedule as planned, presentation dates and times are tentative until confirmed by Graduate Division staff. Some changes may need to be made in order to ensure that the number of participants in each round is roughly equivalent. Presenters will be notified at least one week in advance of any schedule changes.
All preliminary presenters will receive:
- A professional recording of their talk
- A chance at winning prize money for their disciplinary grouping ($1000 for 1st place, $500 for second place, $25 gift card for all other presenters)
- Grad Slam swag (branded mug and canvas tote)
