Lightning talks

Short sharp descriptions of short topics

A regular feature, PGCon will have a Lightning talks session, with presentations on diverse topics.

The format remains essentially the same: in a one hour period, audiences are entertained and informed by a rapid fire series of short talks on interesting new or on-going work by individuals or groups. Slides aer permitted, but not obligatory; pictures are highly recommended. Topic areas include new open source software projects, works in progress for future releases of existing projects, student projects, etc. Lightning talks topics this year may make good conference papers next year!

The number of slots is limited, and experience suggests there will be more takers than slots. Sign up well in advance to be assured a spot. Please e-mail to sign up. Send a one or two paragraph summary of the topic to be presented, and the names of the person(s) presenting it. Also, please give a time estimate -- typically times will be one to five minutes. The time limit will be strictly enforced -- you will be cut off if you try to run over! The Lightning talks e-mail registration deadline is May 16, after which remaining slots (if any) may be signed up for in person. Any slides must be received by the WIP session chair by, at latest, May 19 at 11:59pm GMT. The session chair this year is Selena Deckelmann.
