Call for TNC24 Lightning Talks and BoFs now open

It’s time for you to shine on stage at TNC24 with your very own Lightning Talk, as the call for proposals is now open. 

Lightning Talks are always an exciting and popular session at TNC every year. These presentations focus on one key point which can include a quick tip or demonstration, a successful project, a story, or even a collaboration invitation. However, you must be prepared as you only have five minutes on stage. Yes, you read that right, five minutes 

The aim of these sessions is for you to have the opportunity to share your ideas so they can get the attention they deserve. 

Your Lightning Talk proposal abstracts should include: 

  • Presentation title 
  • Presentation description 
  • Presenter’s name and affiliation 

Submissions for BoFs (Bird of a Feather meetings) are also now open. These meetings will be scheduled during conference hours, with attendance of up to 40 pax. The duration will be a maximum of 90 minutes. 

Submit your TNC24 proposals now

The submission deadline for Lightning Talk and BoF proposals is 11 March midnight CET. 

Also happening today: The submission deadline for the Call for Demonstrations closes today, 5 February at midnight CET.
