Pecha Kucha?

Pecha Kucha is a presentation format that originated in Japan and is now used worldwide for sharing ideas, stories, and information.

The term "Pecha Kucha" is derived from the Japanese words "chit-chat" and it emphasizes brevity and conciseness in communication.

In a traditional Pecha Kucha presentation, the speaker uses 20 slides that are displayed for 20 seconds each, resulting in a total presentation time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds. This time limit challenges presenters to be concise, focused, and visually engaging in their delivery.

Pecha Kucha presentations typically involve a combination of images, graphics, and minimal text, with the speaker providing narration or commentary to accompany the slides.

Practical information

  • Are you a researcher based in the Netherlands or Belgium currently working on your PhD-project or postdoc-project? Then this event is for you!

  • Registration does not guarantee you to become a speaker at the event. First a selection round will take place. For this round you will be requested to send in a 3-minute pitch video before June 30, 2023. Based on these videos 6 speakers will be selected.

  • A professional jury will select the final speakers based on clarity, content and charisma and will choose the ultimate winner on November 23, 2023.

  • On the actual event 6 speakers will present their Pecha Kucha presentation in front of a general audience (>100 people) (bring your family members and friends!)

  • For the speakers an online workshop will be organised in September, 2023 to teach you the basics of Pecha Kucha.
