Excelsior is seeking speakers of all experience levels and backgrounds to contribute to our Lightning talk program!
Who can submit a proposal?
Whether you are a first year student or have been around for 10 years in the industry, we think you've got something to share. The tech community is stronger than ever and we're still reaching new areas, new industries, and new users. We want you to be part of the community to make this world a better place. In particular, we welcome submissions from people that have never done a talk before! And if you want help preparing a talk, let us know! We are eager to help new people with talks.
Proposing a talk:
Most talks are 20 minutes long, but we do offer a limited number of 30-minute slots for important topics that promise to benefit from a more extensive treatment. We organize the schedule into two "tracks", grouping talks by topic and having them in the same room for consecutive sessions.
There is no official restriction on the topic that you propose for a talk session. Talks about engineerning are most likely to line up with the interests of Excelsiors's audience, and a key consideration that the talk selection committee will be thinking about is your talk’s ability to draw an audience. We observe a limit of one talk per presenter. You may propose more than one, but the committee will ask you to choose only one talk if more than one of your proposals is accepted.
If you have an idea (or don’t!) and want to speak, here’s a very rough process of what you should do next:
Brainstorm or mind map to expand upon your ideas or knowledge in search of a general topic
Write a paragraph or two, or some bullet points, to outline the core concepts you want to communicate and what people might learn from your talk
Get someone you trust to read your notes and tell you what they think they’d learn
Proofread and submit your proposal.
