FSCI 2020 | Online, August 3-13, 2020
Do you have a story to tell, or a successful technique to suggest to your colleagues? Are you passionate about a facet of scholarly communication that you don’t see in our curriculum? Do you have something to add to the dialogue that you feel is being overlooked? Then contribute a Lightning Talk, and spark some conversation. Held on Day 1 of FSCI, these talks help set the tone and foster connections among like-minded professionals in attendance. The main rules are that your talk should: 1) make the audience think; 2) discuss something that could make an impact in scholarly communications, 3) be a maximum of five minutes; and 4) follow the FORCE11 Code of Conduct.
If you want to present a lightning talk, please submit a description of it at the link below. The submitted talks will be reviewed by a small committee (Daniel S. Katz, ?, ? ? Tom Olijhoek) for relevance, potential impact, and excitement, with preference given to those proposals that complement other parts of the FSCI program. Decisions will be announced by July 24, along with brief feedback. Accepted lightning talks can be presented either without slides or with PDF slides. Slides will be required to be submitted by noon, August 5, the day of the lightning talks to give us time to assemble them into a single presentation to avoid delays in switching laptops. Each speaker will get up to 5 minutes to talk. Some related guidance on roughly similar talks is available from scidev.net.
Deadline: July 15, 2020..."
