Submissions for the WE14 Rapid Fire presentations are due in just two weeks, on July 16th!
Here is your chance to present your technical work to a broader audience, learn how to connect your your thesis to broader goals, and get some feedback on your presentation. As a previous participant, I found it to be very useful, both for improving my presentation skills and for really hearing what challenges other SWE graduate students are solving in their research groups.
It also gives you a further opportunity to solicit funding from your advisor to attend the WE14 conference!

Note that your abstract must be constructed around one or more of the NAE (National Academy of Engineering) Grand Challenges. Detailed descriptions of these challenges can be found on their website.
Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of judges, and notifications will be sent out in August. Please keep in mind that all chosen Rapid Fire presenters must confirm that they will attend WE14.
