A lightning talk gives you two minutes (and one slide) to discuss your subject. Lightning talks are the perfect way to introduce yourself at the workshop. You could talk about your work, an idea, a problem, a pitch for the CW Hackday or anything that's related to software and research and ideally related to the them of software supporting reproducible research.
If you would like to present a lightning talk, let us know. You need to provide a title and a couple of sentences to describe the talk. Anyone attending is free to request a lightening talk slot. We will add lightning talk to this page as we get requests.
How quick is lightning?
Lightning is pretty quick: two minutes. You are also allowed only one slide. 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 two minutes (and practising before hand is the best way to ensure on the day yours is a good one).
If you want more time to investigate your subject, let us know and we can add the topic to our series of discussion sessions.
