Lightning Talks

Important Dates
Deadline for early submission: July 2, 2007
Consideration of submissions will continue until all available openings are taken
Conference starts: October 21, 2007

A lightning talk is a five-minute presentation on any topic of interest to the OOPSLA community. If you are a software developer working on an exciting project and that you don't have the time to submit a full proposal for an entire session, Lightning Talks are a great way to gain exposure with the OOPSLA community and receive feedback on your ideas.

Please note that these talks are presented back-to-back with a strictly enforced five minute limit, so make sure that you can fit your presentation within this time span.

A sign up sheet will also be available during the conference, so you can improvise a Lightning Talk of your own once you're at the conference, but slots tend to fill up fast, so we recommend you sign up in advance through the OOPSLA electronic submission system.
