Pecha Kucha (Japanese<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_language>: ペチャクチャ, IPA: [pet͡ɕa ku͍̥t͡ɕa]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:IPA_for_Japanese>[1]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pecha_Kucha#cite_note-0>, chit-chat) is a presentation methodology in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each, usually seen in a multiple-speaker event for a total of 6 hours and 40 seconds. Pecha Kuchas originated in 2003 in Tokyo. This year the Charleston Conference would like to “try out” this new presentation system.
