CW19 Lightning Talks

A lightning talk gives you two minutes and one slide to discuss a subject. Lightning talks are the perfect way to introduce yourself at the workshop.

You could talk about your work, an idea, a problem, a pitch for the CW Hackday or anything that's related to software and research, and ideally related to the theme of CW19; alternatively you could focus on one of the sub-themes of collaborative working, data/code sharing, reproducible research or data science.

How quick is lightning?

Lightning is pretty quick: two minutes. You are also allowed only one slide. Slide should not require any interaction. You'll be presenting alongside a countdown timer, so you'll have to keep to time. However, it's amazing how much you can present in two minutes.
