Esri Developer Summit Middle East and Africa

Lightning Talks

Experience a series of rapid-fire Lightning Talks from your peers about their exciting innovations and applications that use GIS.

Each five-minute presentation will spark your creativity and get you motivated about the new ways to use GIS technology in your projects.

Interested in giving one? The deadline to submit a Lightning Talk proposal is 13 November 2013.

Guidelines

  • Share one great idea—Tell a story, motivate, and inspire.
  • Make it quick—Presentations must be five minutes or less.
  • No live demos—We want to hear about the idea directly from you. You may use Microsoft PowerPoint, OpenOffice.org Impress, Prezi, or play a fixed-length video that you will use to support your talk. Please use only non-copyrighted images in presentation slides.
  • Have fun!—Share your passion for your great idea. For inspiration, read How to Give a Great Ignite Talk or watch a Lightning Talk on writing UNIX daemons to see how to spice up a topic and make it exciting!

How to Submit

To be considered, email your Lightning Talk presentation slides or video to lightningtalks@esri.com, and please include “DevSummit Middle East and Africa Lightning Talk” in the subject line. Don’t wait too long – the deadline is 13 November, and we’ll be reviewing and accepting Lightning Talks as they come in, so the slots may be full before the deadline.
