Lightning Talks
Sunday 10 June 2018
4:40 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: CC Level 1, Room 3
Session Chairs:
Alan Bridger, UK Astronomy Technology Ctr. (United Kingdom) ;
Kim Gillies, Thirty Meter Telescope (United States)

Lightning talks are 5-minute-long presentations to allow conference participants to have the opportunity to highlight your posters, present a new idea, or to report progress on something interesting you have been working and feel compelled to share. The main objective of this activity is to promote exchange of ideas and productive conversations during the conference. Lightning talks have been scheduled at the end of the day on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.

If you want to propose a lightning talk, please send an e-mail to the conference chairs at your earliest convenience including the following information:

  • Title
  • Presenter
  • Session theme that would be applicable to the subject you want to present (for referential information only)

    Ground rules: Lightning talks’ duration shall be strictly observed by the session chair. It is suggested to limit the number of slides to two, although any number of slides can be used as long as there are shown within the 5-min time limit. Talks will be selected randomly from all the proposals received each day until the end of the lunch break of the applicable days. Selection will be done during the last coffee break before the lightning talk session. Slides must be preloaded at the AV Desk immediately after the proposal is selected and prior to this session. Although there is no requirement to submit a proposal matching the session themes during a given day, you might want to consider submitting proposals that relate to them to take advantage of the attendees’ interests.

    Lightning Talks
    Tuesday 12 June 2018
    5:10 PM - 5:30 PM
    Location: CC Level 1, Room 3
    Session Chairs:
    Frossie Economou, Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (United States) ;
    David L. Terrett, STFC Rutherford Appleton Lab. (United Kingdom)

    Lightning talks are 5-minute-long presentations to allow conference participants to have the opportunity to highlight your posters, present a new idea, or to report progress on something interesting you have been working and feel compelled to share. The main objective of this activity is to promote exchange of ideas and productive conversations during the conference. Lightning talks have been scheduled at the end of the day on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.

    If you want to propose a lightning talk, please send an e-mail to the conference chairs at your earliest convenience including the following information:

  • Title
  • Presenter
  • Session theme that would be applicable to the subject you want to present (for referential information only)

    Ground rules: Lightning talks’ duration shall be strictly observed by the session chair. It is suggested to limit the number of slides to two, although any number of slides can be used as long as there are shown within the 5-min time limit. Talks will be selected randomly from all the proposals received each day until the end of the lunch break of the applicable days. Selection will be done during the last coffee break before the lightning talk session. Slides must be preloaded at the AV Desk immediately after the proposal is selected and prior to this session. Although there is no requirement to submit a proposal matching the session themes during a given day, you might want to consider submitting proposals that relate to them to take advantage of the attendees’ interests.
