Geo-PIT Talks

Take the spotlight in a Geo-PIT talk

The Geo-Institute started Geo-PIT talks in 2019 at Geo-Congress in Philadelphia. Since then, over 60 people have entered the Geo-PIT – and the community is better for it! PIT stands for Powerful, Informative Talks. Its goals were many: diversify the speakers at plenary sessions, have presentations on thought provoking, slightly controversial, or even fun topics, and make the plenary sessions more dynamic.

Geo-PIT talks are 12 minute presentations. What makes a good PIT proposal? Tell a narrative story – this isn’t a technical talk. Have a new viewpoint on an old issue. Be controversial and provocative! If you need inspiration, all previous PIT talks are on the G-I Youtube channel. Literally all of them. And yours could be too! Submissions are now CLOSED.
