Talent search: Event dates
Half of the speakers at TED2013 will be selected through an ambitious experiment: The TED Worldwide Talent Search. Below are the cities where the search is taking place.
The TED Worldwide Talent Search is being held in the 14 cities listed below, on the dates provided. Each city had a separate online application process. Applicants applied to one event only, and they were encouraged to include a short video of themselves. We invited around 30 of the best applicants to give a presentation at each event. Presentation lengths are 3-6 minutes, and the language is English.
