APNIC 56 conference registration is free for selected speakers, however, speakers must fund their own travel if presenting in person. The PC will give preference to in-person presentations over remote presentations.

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 minutes, including Q&A (this time limit is strict).

Talks on topics that are timely, interesting, or even a little crazy are invited.

To submit a Lightning Talk, please select the ‘LIGHTNING TALK’ option in 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.
