Lightning Talks

Lightning Talks are fun, short, five-minute (or less) talks. Ideally each talk should make a single point, often in a fun, quirky or over-the-top way. Slides are optional but often a good image can help get a point across quickly.

Lightning Talks will take place in the last session at the end of the first day of the conference.
