Title: TWed Lightning Talks (Fall 2013)

When: Weds, 04 Dec 2013 (7p)

Where: Winslow 1140, RPI Campus, Troy, NY

DESCRIPTION: At the end of each term TWC holds a Graduate Research "Lightning Talks" TWed session. These special TWed events are a great way for the greater TWC community to learn of the wide range of amazing research happening at TWC, and "a good time is had by all!"

A lightning talk is a VERY short --- 3 minute! --- summary by a researcher of their current research work, with no "props": no slides and only brief "crib notes!"
  • You describe your work from the front of the room
  • There is a timer and a bell
  • Your talk is not only about WHAT you're doing but also WHY
  • You'll get applause at the end!
To paraphrase "Giving Lightning Talks", ..."the point (of a lightning talk) is to make a point, and explain it as quickly as possible. That's it..." Don't caught up in the whole idea of providing background information or explaining other issues.
