CALL FOR POSTERS

Submission is closed.

In the last two years, several TNC participants have created high quality poster presentations. An effective poster presentation is not just a standard research paper stuck to a board. It should summarise your work with graphs and images to tell the story and should use text more sparingly. Featuring a poster at TNC will serve as an excellent advertisement for your work, and can act as a great conversation starter with TNC participants.

In general, poster presentations are less formal than regular presentations, are more interactive and can provoke various points of view. Selected posters will be displayed in an area close to the parallel sessions and on the conference website.

GIVE A LIGHTNING TALK

Submission is closed.

Lightning talks are five-minute presentations focusing on one key point; this can be an idea, a successful project, a cautionary story, a collaboration invitation, a quick tip or a demonstration.
Use this time wisely to present the pertinent message of the subject matter without the need for background history, the problem space or a business-case justification.
Lightning talks are an excellent opportunity for first-time speakers.
We will have sixteen lightning talks at TNC2012 on 21 May 2012 from 16:00 - 17:30.
Email lightning-talks@terena.org including your bio, a proposed title and a short description of your talk.
