2018 Green Technology International Conference call for Light Talks
October 15, 2017

If you are engaged in Green Technology, we invite you to share a Light Talk about your  focused area at the  upcoming  2018 IEEE Green Technologies Conference with the theme of “Smart City”.

When?  April 4 to 6, 2018.  Details can be found  here

The Lightning Talks are short five minute talks on topics related to the subject or related areas of the conference.

Segments of 6 talks will be presented in a given Light Talks Session. There may be two of these sessions.

The point of a lightning talk is not to give a detailed talk but rather to present briefly the main point. The topics acceptable for talks are any subject that is conference related. The organizing committee will decide whether the proposed topic is suitable for lightning talks.

If you are a start up, share your idea(s) for great impact in Smart City, Green Technology or Energy Management.

The main goal of the talk is to make your point fast  to move on to the next subject. No hard and fast rule about the presentation format, no judgment either. However, the five-minute time limit is strictly enforced and you will be asked to stop at the end of 5 minutes. If you are a professor working with students on some project, there is an opportunity to present some key points about the project (e.g. from McCombs School of Business, UT/ECE, ACC …).

What is required?

Speakers desiring  to present lightning talks can send  the information required (outlined below) via email  to normagreentech@gmail.com ,  or  to e.shahhaidar@gmail.com  by no later than  February 28, 2018. 

Lighting Talk Speakers will need to provide: name, affiliation, contact email, and most importantly the title of the talk.

Each speaker is permitted five minutes to speak and up to three slides for their presentation. Speakers must be present.

Everyone should be prepared for a fun , dynamic and entertaining lightning talk!
