Tips for a good Lightning Talk

Remember
  • All slides are run from a central computer.
    • Please see the section on bringing your own display if you absolutely must use your own.
  • You only have FIVE (or 6 2/3rd) MINUTES (for Pecha Kucha). Use them wisely.
    • Note: In Pecha Kucha, slides automatically advance every 20 seconds
  • BE READY TO GO AND IN THE ROOM at least 15 MINUTES PRIOR TO YOUR SCHEDULED TIME.
  • While there are better, there is no need for any catchy slides, a background graphic is fine...but you need something behind you.
  • Just be informative, be quick, be smart.
  • Tell people how to get involved and how they can contact you.
  • Include the following things in your last slide:
Name
Contact (DECT, email, fon)
Links (project homepage)
Place of contact (assembly, room, party)
  • Practice your talk with friends.

How it Works in Detail

  1. Submit your talk in advance.
    • You must submit your slides or background graphic in advance to guarantee a spot on the schedule.
    • Exceptions will be made only for top secret demos and specialized hardware which MUST have a VGA out ready to go. You must bring your own VGA adapter.
  2. At the Session
    1. Be present in the room 15 minutes before the session starts
    2. Be ready at the podium two presentations before yours begins, jump on stage when your slides appear!
  3. On Stage
    1. Adjust the microphone.
    2. Check your slides or background graphic
    3. Say who you are
    4. Mention the title again.
    5. If you are using slides, say "next slide" when you want to advance your slide (Does not apply to Pecha Kucha, slide advances automatically.)
    6. Speak clearly and loud.
    7. Only say the most interesting stuff.
    8. Say everything else on your webpage.
    9. When you hear the audience start to countdown to "time!" say goodbye and leave the stage quickly.
  4. After your Talk
    1. Be prepared to meet interested people after the session.
    2. Have a flyer, handout and/or business card ready.
    3. Get back to them during the congress.

Guidelines for Display Hardware Approval

  • Must be a presentation or demo that requires interactive input.
  • Must TEST your setup in the room at a prearranged time at least 12 hours prior to the Lighting Talk
  • You have 10 seconds to get your laptop on the video, anything beyond that comes out of your scheduled time.
  • Must bring your own hardware to convert to VGA.
