Lightning Talks

Coffee breaks (10:30-11:00, 6-7 Dec. 2017 and 15:30-16:00, 5-7 Dec.)
Location: Podium@Exhibition Hall

Lightning Talks are short five minute talks on technical topics. About 12 talks will be presented during coffee breaks. The point of a lightning talk is not to give a detailed talk but rather to present briefly the main point. The topics acceptable for talks are any subject that is conference related. The organizing committee will decide whether the proposed topic is suitable for lightning talks.

Come to talk about your company’s product, a nifty algorithm trick, some thoughts triggered by presentations at the conference, or if you are a student, share the highlight of your thesis project. The main goal of the talk is to make your point fast and we move on to the next subject. No hard and fast rule about the presentation format, no judgment either. However, the five-minute time limit is strictly enforced and you will be asked to stop at the end of 5 minutes.

Speakers that desire to present lightning talks can sign up here on a first come first serve basis before 5 Dec. (Tuesday) noon. Logistic instructions for the lightning talks will be posted at the conference. Speakers will need to provide name, affiliation, contact email, and most importantly the title of the talk when they sign up online. Each speaker is permitted five minutes to speak and zero to three slides for their presentation. Speakers must be present at the start of the coffee break or their slot is forfeited to the next speaker signed up.

Everyone should be prepared for a fun, dynamic and entertaining lightning talk!
