Now accepting Nano-Talk Submissions

If you have a great experiment or data that sheds light on a little understood area or illuminates a controversial area, AND it can be shown in 5 slides and 5 minutes, please consider participating in this session. This will be an exciting and fun opportunity to increase the exchange of ideas and concepts at VB2018!
To be selected to give a Nano-Talk:
1) Register to attend VB2018
2) Send your name, affiliation and presentation title to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
3)  include a five-slide pdf of your presentation. This pdf does not have to be the final version but we want to make sure you can present your "story" in 5 slides/5 minutes. This is critical so that the session finishes on time.
Speakers will be selected by a review committee.  We will accept no more than ten speakers for this session and submissions must be received by September 14.
