In summary, every supported student participant is responsible for at least 10 minutes of an oral presentation or 50% of a poster presentation. Conversely, we do not support three or more students for the same presentation, and also do not support two or more students for the same 10 min survey talk.
Multiple Participant Projects: Occasionally, a research project is very broad and contains many components as well as many collaborators. If there are more than two students in your collaboration you have the following options:
Application: Before applying to YMC you should give some careful thought about how to organize and/or divide your project into presentations and by presenters. Before you submit any joint online application you should also carefully communicate with your collaborator that all the information you enter for him/her is correct and agreed upon.
Joint Oral Presentation: The 20 minute report talks allow for two speakers to be funded as presenters. This also means that both presenters will be listed in the abstracts and are expected to be present during the presentation.
Aside from this it is entirely up to you how you will split up tasks during the presentation. You may have only one person speak, or you may take turns during the talk.
Note on Survey Talks: As in previous years we expect to assign only a small number of survey talks. These talks add some flexibility to our scheduling if we run low on talk slots, and/or allow us to accommodate students for whom this format works best. We expect most projects presented at YMC, however, to fill out a 20 minute talk or be given as a poster.
Keep in mind that choosing a 10min Survey Talk will not significantly influence your chances for an invitation. The number of participants is mostly determined by our budget, and the main criterion for invitation are the mathematical merits of the submitted project.
