The goal of blinc20:20 is to provide a fresh format of concise presentations. First presented in 2016, the blinc20:20 format is inspired by the image-driven PechaKucha (puh-CHAH-kuh-chah), with 20 slides auto-advancing every 20 seconds. This opportunity is open to all NCECA members. Are you ready to use speech and images to relate information, stories and accounts of projects that are inspiring you, your work and ideas?

Presentations will take place on Thursday and/or Friday 3–5pm. Each presenter will be provided with a mic, LCD projection and technical support to screen images. Remember that slides automatically advance every 20 seconds, so be prepared to be brisk with your remarks and have fun!
