Pecha Kucha

What are Pecha Kucha Sessions?

Architects talk too much. That was the impetus for two designers to invent a new type of presentation. And, on a February night in 2003 in their gallery in Tokyo, they held the first ever Pecha Kucha session. Pecha Kucha (PK) comes from the Japanese term for the sound of a conversation, or more simply, “chit-chat.”

The PK style format is simply a six minute and 40 second presentation of 20 slides. The time and number of slides are strictly enforced.

If architects talk too much — what about doctors? The PK format has been a successful presentation style used at many major medical conferences recently. The short session is very well received, allowing for brief, high-level exposure to many topics and ideas. The PK Sessions will highlight many up-and-coming emergency physicians as well as some veteran AAEM speakers.

 

Twitter and PKs

The PK sessions are also the perfect time to stretch your tech muscles! The use of Twitter is encouraged to augment one cutting edge format with another. Join in the conversation @AAEMinfo and use hashtag #AAEMpk

The talks are fast-paced and packed with high-yield information. In other words, they are ideal for an audience full of emergency physicians!

So come join us in San Diego for what is sure to be an exciting educational experience. And remember the name Pecha Kucha — you don’t have to be able to pronounce it to enjoy it!
