Apply to Participate in NEDAS NYC Lightning Talks!

We have reserved 30 minutes of the NEDAS NYC 2017 Spring Summit for Lightning Talks. A lightning talk is a very short presentation (2-3 mins) or speech by any attendee on any topic relevant to the NEDAS audience.  

Lightning talks are an opportunity to showcase your solutions, not your products. This presentation opportunity should not be a sales pitch, but rather an opportunity to promote your business through showcasing your vast knowledge and expertise. These are limited to ten minutes and the timing is 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!

To apply:

  1. On April 13, we will email a link to registered attendees to apply.
  2. The form will ask for the title of your idea and a description.
  3. The first 10-12 people who apply are automatically accepted.


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.

Good luck! We’ll send a confirmation to all accepted participants prior to the conference and will provide a one slide powerpoint template to showcase your idea.
