What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short,
powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where
Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all
topics from science to business to global issues in more than 100 languages.

What is TEDx?

At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos or a combination of live

presenters and TED Talks videos sparks deep conversation and connections
at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently,
under a free license granted by TED. Till now, 800 cities around the world have
hosted one or more TEDx event in 126 countries; 3190 TEDx events have taken
place and this year TEDxAUB is going to add another one for the records!

What is TEDxAUB?
TEDxAUB is an independently organized TED event that takes place annually in
AUB. Our cultural conference hosts live speakers to give renowned TEDx talks
about different topics in their fields and experiences, spreading knowledge,
sharing ideas, and building a community of curious individuals that strive to gain
knowledge. The group of live speakers taking part in these conferences are
experts in their fields, and with the help of the TEDxAUB team they become
experts on the TEDx's round carpet.
