Elevator pitch

In this Tropentag, we want to explore new capabilities of the poster presenters: we will invite some of you to present your Poster in an Elevator Pitch!
An elevator pitch is a conversation, or an ice breaker, that should lead into a deeper dialogue about your ideas, your work and the results. You can also use it to create interest in a project, idea, or product – or in yourself.

The key message of your presentation should be synthesized in two slides and one more slide containing a picture, if desired.

The posters in the following sessions will be preseneted as elevator pitch:
1.a I Crop production and management I
1.a II Crop production and management II
1.a III Crop production and management III
3.b I Resilience and adaptation to climate change I
3.b II Resilience and adaptation to climate change II
10.a I Gender and intersectional perspectives in transforming food systems I
10.a II Gender and intersectional perspectives in transforming food systems II

Please use the following template for your elevator pitch presentation: ppt template

In practice you typically have just 30 seconds to leave an exciting, impactful and meaningful impression with whomever you come in contact with. Considering the nature of Tropentag, our elevator pitch will give you 2 MINUTES (and only two) to present your work to the audience. The difference of the classical poster session is that, instead of putting everybody together in a small space to see your poster, and the audience moving from one poster to other, you will present it on a stage in front of the audience in a very dynamic sequence and creative manner. At the end of the round of elevator pitch, each poster presenter will stand in front of its own poster (yes, they still will be there) and wait for the audience interested in your work.

All the Elevator Pitch presentations must be delivered in one of the following formats: Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt) (preferred), or Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) The file name should be structured as follows:

ID1_Smith.ppt or ID99_Wang.pdf

Speakers should deliver their presentation file at an indicated, central point near the registration desk. The presentation will be distributed to the projection points in the lecture halls from this central computer exclusively. We'd like to receive your presentation as early as possible but no later than one day prior to your scheduled lectures. If this is not possible, the presentation must be delivered at least one hour before the beginning of the session.

Presentations will be accepted only as MS Powerpoint presentations or PDF presentations. Correct presentations in other formats cannot be guaranteed.
Please make use of standard fonts only. We recommend Apple users to test their presentation on a Windows computer. The usage of a personal laptop computer in order to ensure correct display of complex presentations such as movies etc., will NOT be accepted.
