Three Minute Thesis

3MT™, founded by the University of Queensland, is an academic competition that cultivates students’ presentation and research communication skills and challenges them to describe their research within only three minutes to a general audience with one static slide.

Since IGARSS is held in a hybrid format this year, the competition is open to all students in a research-based master’s or doctoral program worldwide, whether attending the symposium in-person or remotely.

If you want to take the challenge and participate in the competition, submit a 3-minute video describing your thesis and research topic to a video platform (YouTube, TikTok, etc.) or to a site accessible only by the evaluation committee with a private URL. The judging criteria for this phase are presentation skills (40%), scientific quality (40%) and originality (20%) of the topic presented.

The top 10 submissions will be selected and invited to the final round, which will take place virtually on Tuesday, July 19, 2022.

Three winners will be selected by the judging panelists based on these competition rules, and awarded cash money of 500$, 300$, and 200$ and “IEEE GRSS Excellence in Technical Communication Student Prize Award” certificates.

For the initial phase, please submit your videos by June 30, 2022, through this form.

If you have any questions about the competition, please send us an email at 3mt@igarss2022.org.
