For those folks attending APNIC 34 conference in Phnom Penh, the call for papers for the Lightning Talks session on Thursday afternoon is out now (see below).
APNIC34 Lightning Talks 16:00-17:00, Thursday 30th August Ballroom, NagaWorld Hotel, Phnom Penh.
Lightning talks are short talks/presentations on relevant topics that last no more than 10 minutes, including walking to podium and Q&A. This time limit is strictly enforced. Lightning talks are open to all registered APNIC34 attendees.
Talks on topics that are timely, interesting, or even a little crazy, are invited. The APNIC34 Programme Committee will evaluate all submissions and choose the best six. Talks must be relevant to the Internet Operations community, as per the APNIC34 Presentation Guidelines.
If you've thought about presenting at a future APNIC Conference, a lightning talk this year is a great place to start!
The use of slides is not required although most people choose to use them. Speakers typically prepare three or four slides. Final slides (or detailed outline of talk if not using slides) must be provided with the talk proposal. Due to time constraints, these will be presented from a common laptop - speakers will not be using their own. Please note in your submission if you require a web browser or other application for a live demonstration.
To submit a Lightning talk please do so via the conference submission system - please select the LIGHTNING TALK option for your proposal.
Final slides MUST be included and in PDF format as all Lightning talks will be presented from a common presentation laptop. If your talk requires presentations build-outs then be sure to write each step of the build-out as a new page in the PDF.
