Your Lightning Talk

A Lightning Talk gives you the opportunity to learn how to describe your work in a concise and clear manner.

How does it work?

  • Your talk should be 5 minutes long and consist of no more than 3 slides presenting your research.
  • A roster of 6 presenters give their talks in rapid succession. (You are expected to stay as an audience member for the other 5 presenters in your session.)
  • Once all 6 Lightning Talks in a session are completed, the 6 presenters go to a designated area in the room to accept questions.
  • The question portion of the Lightning Talk session is 15 minutes.

Each Lightning Talk session is 45 minutes long in total.
