Your Say @ Your ICA


You have seven minutes to change your profession

Have you got an idea or piece of research you’d like to share with the global profession? Keen to start a big debate on an under-explored issue?

This is your chance. As part of the Virtual program for ICA2023, we’re asking you to create your own seven-minute video abstract. It can be on any subject you think your peers would value – future opportunities, policy developments, technical or professional areas – or from way out in left field.

The deadline to submit your video is by 10 March 2023. 


  • Your video can include video clips, music, GIFs, slides and you talking to the camera
  • If you have polls, papers, articles or calculations that go with the video, we will publish them too. You can submit accompanying materials to the Institute at by 10 March 2023.
  • The video must be under seven minutes, and can’t be promotional or contain inappropriate material.
