Lightning Talk            

There are 10 slots available. The 'talk' will be limited to 4-5 minutes and no more than 5 slides.   If there are more than 10 lightning talk registrations, the Spring Conference committee will select the speakers to ensure a diversity of topics, labs and different levels of seniority.

Deadline to register a lightning talk is Friday, March 31.

This will be a great public speaking opportunity, so we strongly encourage students and postdocs to apply.

The lightning talks will be judged during lunch and the winner will receive a cash prize.  The printed slides must be presented at the poster session to be qualified for the cash award
