Call for Proposals

  • Opening day
  • Submission deadline

Here you will be able to submit your proposal for a Lightning Talk or Parallel Session for the GÉANT Project Symposium 2023.

Lightning Talks (5 minutes)
Lightning Talk proposals on any relevant topic for the plenary audience at the Symposium. Lightning Talks should be 5 minutes and 5 minutes only, and focus on one idea, thought or challenge that the audience should take away. We encourage participants to be creative and think outside the box for lightning talk topics: are you using a great new tool other work packages could benefit from? Do you have an idea for how NRENs can better meet Sustainable Development Goals? Have you developed a new training approach that other work packages could utilize? Do you have a great idea to shake up planning for the next phase of the GN5 project?

The lightning talks will be presented in a plenary session one after the other, so think how you and your idea can stand out.

Parallel Sessions (25 minutes)
Parallel Sessions will take place on Wednesday 11th December. These sessions will be discussions based on a pitch given in the morning to the audience. Topics should be of interest to all areas and work packages - for example data spaces, data sovereignty, agile development, training certification etc.

Parallel sessions should be discussion lead rather than presentation led and are not suitable for hybrid set-up (no VC will be provided).

Each parallel session submitter will ALSO be expected to give a lightning talk “pitch” to the plenary room on Wednesday morning. This should sell your session to the audience and give a clear reason why they should attend. Submitters will be invited to write up their session and ideas as a blogpost after the meeting.

All submissions must be written in English and all presentations must be given in English.
The Symposium does not support any remote contributions as the conference is a networking in-person event. If in-person participation is not possible for you, please reach out to the event organisers before submitting your proposal.

As part of your submission, we ask you to give us your name and email address. We collect this personal data so that we can inform you of the outcome of the marking process. Please see the GÉANT Privacy Policy for further information about how we collect and process personal data and your rights regarding that process.
