Lightning talk procedure

  • If you cannot attend or give your talk, please remove yourself from the list above by editing the page and removing your talk.
  • If you cannot give your talk at the scheduled time, please edit the page, move your talk to your desired session, and sign your name next to it (~~~~).
  • If there are too many talks in a session and they don't balance out by Friday, individual authors will be asked to move.

The idea of a lightning talk is to present an idea or a project -- it is not a finished or complete academic talk. Skip the implementation details -- tell us why your project is interesting and why we should care. Plan to present one idea or project per talk.

All talks are STRICTLY 5 minutes. If you use slides, please prepare these on your laptop and have them ready to go; no more than 5 slides per talk please. Please attend the whole session and line up ahead of your talk so that things can move quickly.
