Flash Talk sessions are a new addition to the NCSE Annual Conference. During each Flash Talk, four of five presenters will deliver a 10 minute presentation followed by 5 minutes Q&A with the audience. At the conclusion of the final presentation, the audience will once again be able to ask questions of the presenters.

Presentations focus on a similar theme. This Flash Talk session will focus on infrastructure as it relates to water, food, and cities. Stop by this exciting session to hear the following presentations:
