Each participant will have three minutes to present his or her research, in plain language, to a non-specialist audience and a multidisciplinary jury.
Only candidates still in school (have not yet defended their thesis) by the date of the competition are eligible.
The organizing committee will arrange for travel and accommodation of the selected candidates (representatives from each African region will be selected).
