About Lightning Talks

A lightning talk is a talk of 5 minutes (and not a second more!) in which you can pitch ideas or talk about active projects. A lightning talk can be about your research, suggestions to solve problems in the publication process, a rant on why the peer review system sucks, basically anything you can think of, as long as it fits in 5 minutes.

During the SIPS 2018 meeting, we will have several rounds of lightning talks. One round lasts 30 minutes and contains 5 lightning talks.

Most lightning talks are arranged during the meeting, mainly (but not exclusively!) to offer people a platform to inform the rest of us where they stand with their hack-a-thons, or what the results were of an unconference session.

Submission Instructions

Interested presenters can schedule their own lightning talk via a Google spreadsheet (link above). Please email Michèle Nuijten ( with questions.
