From HOPE X Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

We are currently accepting Lightning Talk submissions for HOPE-X!

Do you have a project or proposal to pitch? Do you have a subject you would like to share? Have something to show off? Want to give a talk on something cool, but don't want to prepare an entire long talk? Then give a Lightning Talk at HOPE-X!

Lightning Talks are 5 minutes long talks (or less), on any subject you like. With or without slides. With or without props. This is a great way to promote any topic / interest of choice.

To submit a talk idea, enter it below and/or send an email to mmorsi with your talk subject (as well as any into you'd like) as well as times of availability.

A strict 5 minute time limit will be enforced on talks (they will be timed!), presenters will have a projector available for their use.


  • Friday July 18: 4pm-5:50pm
  • Saturday July 19: 4pm-4:55pm

Location: "YOU" room, the 4th track on the 18th floor of the Hotel Pennsylvania.
