Lightning Talks – Call for Proposals

View list of 2015 Lightning Talk Presentations

What is your big idea for smart grid cybersecurity?

Lightning Talks offer select TCIPG Summer School participants a 5-minute opportunity to present bold, new ideas for research activities, products, or outreach efforts. Each 5-minute slot begins with a title slide, then features 7 slides that auto-advance every 20 seconds. At the end of the talk, the screen will go black and the floor will be open for questions for the remainder of the 5-minute slot.

Ideas for topics can include:

  • New, overlooked real-world problems or research gaps
  • Controversial viewpoints and research areas
  • Industry experience reports
  • Completely different solution approaches than what is documented or practiced
  • New paradigms and practical approaches to smart grid cybersecurity research

LTALK-ICON-SS2015We welcome Lightning Talk proposals from all potential summer school participants, including students who have applied for a scholarship, industrial partners, and corporate sponsors. The proposal form will require a registration confirmation number:

  • Scholarship applicants should enter: scholarapp.
  • Others – if you are not able to register prior to submitting a proposal, enter: regpending.

NOTE: Individuals who submit proposals should plan to attend the entire week of summer school. Those selected to present a Lightning Talk will need to be registered or submit registration within one week of notification of acceptance. Registration fee waivers are not issued for Lightning Talks, but we can offer the Early Bird rate. The date and time of the Lightning Talk session will be on the agenda and is subject to change. Lightning Talks will be recorded and archived for distribution. By submitting a Lightning Talk proposal, you agree to sign a release for this purpose.
