Lightning talks at NANOG 41

  • From: Steve Feldman

We have reserved at least one hour of the NANOG 41 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 you have a topic that's timely, interesting, or even a crackpot
idea you want to share, we encourage you to consider presenting it.

The Program Committee will decide which submissions are relevant
(using criteria based on the NANOG mailing list AUP) and choose the
best ones to be presented.

Use of slides is optional.  All slides must be in PDF or Powerpoint
format, and will be loaded in advance onto the speaker laptop on
the podium.

There is a good overview of the use of lightning talks at the Perl
conference at

Although their format is slightly different, many of their ideas
will apply here.

Submissions are open starting now, and close at 5:00 PM MDT on
Monday, October 15.

See you in Albuquerque!
