Aim to win a prize


The Flash Presentation Competition sessions have been included in the IIOA Conference Programme since the 2013 Conference in Kitakyushu, Japan. These sessions are now firmly established and the prizes have been renamed into the "REAL Prize", sponsored by the Regional Economics Applications Laboratory of the University of Illinois.

Presentation Rules

The guidance and rules for each presentation is as follows:

  • Each presentation is a maximum of “four” minutes. After four minutes, the speaker is not allowed to say another word.
  • One PowerPoint or PDF slide. Animations are strictly forbidden!
  • During the four minutes, there is no time for discussion or interruption.
  • You can present whatever you want! The topic is open - it can cover the paper being presented at the IIOA Conference or an evolving idea.

Voting Rules

The voting rules applied are:

  • Only the Audience attending the ENTIRE session can vote.
  • The organizers will send out Electronic Voting Links.
  • The organisers will help the audience without smartphone or laptop to vote at the door.


The winners will be selected from the presentations across the three sessions using the Audience Vote to inform the decision-making process.

Three prizes of $200 each or four prizes of $150 each will be awarded – dependent upon the quality of the winning presentations.

Prize winners will be announced in the Annual General Assembly Meeting on Thursday, 1st September 2022.
