How to present a lightning talk

Hartree.jpgA lightning talk gives you three minutes (and one slide) to discuss your subject. They are the perfect way to introduce yourself at the workshop and get people talking about the subjects that interest you. You could talk about your work, an idea, a problem or anything that's related to training.

If you would like to present a lightning talk, let us know. You need to provide a title and a sentence or two that describes the talk.

How quick is lightning?

Lightning is pretty quick: three minutes. You are allowed only one slide with no animation. You'll be presenting alongside a countdown timer, so you'll have to keep to time. However, it's amazing how much you can present in three minutes.

If you want more time to investigate your subject, let us know and we can add the topic to our series of break out sessions.
