We will be offering a session of Lightning Talks at the MOUG-OLAC Conference, Oct. 23-26, 2014, at the Kansas City Plaza Marriott. Lightning Talks are designed to be short presentations in order to share with others ideas and concepts of a MOUG or OLAC focus. The goal is to demonstrate a topic in a quick and insightful manner. PowerPoint slides are fine, but do not forget other possible means of presentation: videos, music, hand-puppets or even an interpretive dance, as long as it’s useful and informative. (One wonders what an RDA Interpretive Dance would be like. We’ll probably have to wait until the local arrangements reception!)

Talks are arranged one after the other during the session. Each presenter gets FIVE minutes, and only five minutes. Yes, we have a stop-watch.

We are currently accepting applications for presentations to be considered for this session.

If you're interested, please submit your proposal to Michelle Turvey-Welch by Monday, July 14. Please include your name, contact information, title of presentation and a brief description. The Program Committee will be reviewing these and finalizing the presenters by Friday, Aug. 8, 2014.

Additional information is available on the OLAC-MOUG conference website. We welcome any questions you might have.
