CW16 Lightning talks

A lightning talk gives you two minutes (and one slide or video) to discuss a 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 software credit theme of CW16; alternatively you could focus on one of the sub-themes of collaborative working, data/code sharing,reproducible research or data science.

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.

How quick is lightning?

Lightning is pretty quick: two minutes. You are also allowed only one slide or video. Neither slide nor video should require any interaction once put up or started. 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.

If you want more time to investigate your subject, let us know and we will try and add it to our series of discussion sessions.
