AATC2017 Lightning Talks are Back!

Added to The Alliance

The Program Committee for AATC2017 is proud to announce that Lightning Talks will again be part of our program. These 45-minute sessions, one per conference day, are filled with quick-hitting technical talks, lasting only 7 minutes, given by people with something new and exciting to say about a cutting-edge topic. These sessions are high-energy, full of passion and information, lots of fun, and you know you want to be there!

There are two ways to participate in Lightning Talks. The first is to visit the Lightning Talks registration page and sign up. Lightning Talks are very short, only 7 minutes long, and the topic is entirely up to you (within reason, of course!). We’ll build a spectacular Lightning Talk program from your submissions, and you’ll be on stage talking to your peers. It’s a great, informal, low-pressure way to share what you’re thinking about right now or where you’re thinking about going in the future.

The other obvious way to participate is to show up and enjoy the show. Listen to your colleagues talk about radical ideas, and see what new ideas they spawn in your own thoughts. Some talks are silly, some are very technical, and some are both - show up and find out for yourself!

There is never a shortage of topics or speakers for Lightning Talks. Sign up now to make sure you have a spot. And see you in Boston!
