lightning talks

Starting this year, UIST will provide first-time UISTers, young researchers and professionals the opportunity to show a 60 seconds lightning talk at the beginning of the paper sessions. As part of the main program of UIST, the lightning talks will get a strong visibility and are a great opportunity to get to know more people at UIST. The lightning talks should briefly introduce the attendee, their research interest and may be potentially an opportunity to look for internship positions, finding a PhD advisor or simply getting to know more people at UIST.

More information about lightning talk submissions can be found HERE.

Playlist of all lightning talk videos can be found HERE.
