*What is a Science Slam?*

The idea behind the ‘Science Slam’ is to introduce the broad field of crystallography to the public. To accomplish this, we are looking for creative, entertaining and simple/understandable talks of scientists from all fields of crystallography around Europe. The presentations should have a strong focus on potential applications, future developments and reference to everyday life. We do not want to scare laymen away with big equations and complicated or cryptic data. We would like to show them how important crystallography is – to the past, present, and the future.
