Accepted Abstracts to the 2018 IADR/PER General Session & Exhibition are eligible to apply to be part of the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition. The deadline to apply for the competition is April 30, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.


The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) students. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), the exercise cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

*Professional Doctorate* (Research) (program composed of at least 2/3 research) and funded via the Research Training Scheme (for Australian students).
