However, in the spirit of TEDTalks, BCTalks also want lectures to be accessible to the general BC student population.

Again, the BCTalks team urges you to make your lecture as accessible to a general audience as possible.
Lectures should be between 10 to 15 minutes (max). Please estimate as closely as possible, as your lecture length will be important to the selection process.
