Separation Science Slam at HPLC 2023

Rock your science! Register for the HPLC Science Slam!

Bring your research from your laboratory to our stage!


Science slam is a science competition and another way of communicating research. It is not a scientific presentation. It is about young scientists bringing their own research closer to the HPLC 2023 audience in an entertaining and understandable way, clearly outlining the relevance of their research or offering a personal approach to their project.

You are on stage and have 5 minutes time to impress the participants of HPLC 2023 by free speech, animated PowerPoint presentations, illustrative images, a poem, a rap, a cabaret, ….your creativity!

It is a competition between the science slammers and the goal is to win the favor of the audience and jury! Not necessarily the most humorous contribution will win. To bring contents and amusement into a harmonious relationship, that is the goal of this modern science communication.
