Call for Lightning Talks for NDN2022

Call for Lightning Talks for NDN2022

The Program Committee for NDN2022 invites you to propose a lightning talk for the 31st NORDUnet conference.

DEADLINE extended to 15 July

Lightning talks are five-minute presentations focusing on one key point; this can be an idea, a successful project, a cautionary story, a collaboration invitation, or even a quick tip. Lightning talks are mainly for those that want to get feedback on an idea or (preliminary) results – or even first-time speakers.  It is also a way to reach out to a broader audience.

“There are no limits to the choice of topics. You can decide to focus on some minuscule technical detail only relevant to one or two in the audience.  No problem, everyone else will know that in five minutes somebody else will take the floor,” says Tangui Coulouarn, Lightning Talks session chair.

Use the time wisely to present the pertinent message of the subject matter without the need for background history, the problem space, or a business-case justification. If (with emphasis on “if”!) you want to use slides, make sure they are clear, light, and not too many (typically one or two will do).

The submissions deadline is 15 July, 2022 . Submit your lightning talk proposal(s) stating speaker name, affiliation, title of talk, and a very brief abstract (fewer than 100 words) to lightning@ndn2022.net.

The NORDUnet conference is a well-established networking conference with a history that dates back more than 40 years. It is organized every 24 months by the Nordic research and education network NORDUnet together with one of the five Nordic national research networking organizations. It brings together networking, network services, cloud, and computing professionals, and users from the Nordic countries, Europe and global communities.

Our aim is to showcase Nordic, European & global collaborations, as well as future developments, current challenges and recent results within the topics and areas covered by the conference.

NDN2022 is the first post-Covid NORDUnet conference and the bygone four years have honed the interest and wish to meet face-to-face and catch up on the latest development.

This year the conference will take place in Reykjavik, Iceland, on 13-15 September, 2022. The conference aims at covering many aspects of NREN activities, including but not limited to Campus Networking, Arctic Networking, Cloud Services, Educational Services, Evolution of Network , Security and Privacy, Identity Management, Services for HPC and Data Driven Science, and Quantum Computing. Registration for the conference is open.

We look forward to reading your proposals and seeing you in Reykjavik. If you have any questions, please contact lightning@ndn2022.net

Kristina Lillemets, Chair of the Programme Committee and Josva Kleist, Co-chair
