Lightning talks at NANOG 37!
We have reserved one hour of the NANOG 37 agenda for "Lightning Talks". A lightning talk is a very short presentation or speech by any attendee on any topic relevant to the NANOG audience. These are limited to ten minutes; this will be strictly enforced. If have a topic that's timely, interesting, or even a crackpot idea you want to share, we encourage you to consider presenting it. Signups for lightning talks will be accepted during the NANOG meeting, instructions will be given during the opening plenary on Monday. The Program Committee will decide which submissions are relevant (using criteria based on the NANOG mailing list AUP,) and choose the best six to be presented. Use of slides is optional. Any slides must be in PDF or Powerpoint format, and will be loaded in advance onto the speaker laptop. There is a good overview of the use of lightning talks at the Perl conference at http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2004/07/30/lightningtalk.html. Although their format is slightly different, many of their ideas will apply here. Steve Feldman Program Chair
