Speakers can also sign up for longer sessions. Please mention the proposed length of your session at the time of submission.

Lightning talks

If you have some interesting ideas, but do not want to deliver a talk on the subject, you could opt for a lightning talk- which is a 5-10 minutes slot to present your idea or project. You are welcome to continue the discussion in breakout areas.
