Lightning Talks RFP

NCFA is bringing back to ever so  popular Lightning Talks for MM4C! During the conference we will feature ten seven-minute-long presentations in a round of Lightning Talks  to be held on Thursday, June 22 from 4:30 – 6:00 pm.


This fast-paced session is a great way to present on topics related to your work or avocations, professional or personal, and provides the opportunity to become more familiar with others in the field. Each presenter has exactly seven minutes to present their topic.  Power points are welcome, but must be sent in ahead of time. The next presentation begins immediately after the preceding one ends. The timing each presentation is strictly enforced.


The nature of the structure of Lightning Talks ensures that both the presenter and the audience will have fun. Programmatic and personal lightning talks are encouraged, and you do not need any prior speaking experience. We are looking for people from a range of backgrounds. This session is meant to end the day in an entertaining, light-hearted way.

In order to submit a Lightning Talk proposal, please complete this super simple form by April 21, 2017.  Selected speakers will be notified by April 28th.
