Lightning Talks

You can also submit a topic for a Lightning Talk. These short talks/presentations are open to all and last no more than 10 minute, including Q&A (this time limit is strict).

Talks on topics that are timely, interesting, or even a little crazy are invited. The PC will choose the best six. 

To submit a Lightning Talk, please select the ‘LIGHTNING TALK’ option on the submission system.


Prospective presenters should note the majority of speaking slots will be filled well before the final submission deadline. The PC will retain a limited number of slots up to the final submission deadline for presentations that are exceptionally timely, important, or of critical operational importance.

You must include draft slides with your submission in PDF or PPT format only.
