LISA '10 Call for Participation
Invited Talks and The Guru Is In
An invited talk discusses a topic of general interest to attendees. Unlike a
refereed paper, this topic need not be new or unique but should be timely and
relevant or perhaps entertaining. A list of suggested topics is available. An
ideal invited talk is approachable and possibly controversial. The material
should be understandable by beginners, but the conclusions may be disagreed
with by experts. Invited talks should be 60–70 minutes long, and speakers
should plan to take 20–30 minutes of questions from the audience. Invited talk
proposals should be accompanied by an abstract of less than one page in length
describing the content of the talk. You can also propose a panel discussion
topic. It is most helpful to us if you suggest potential panelists. Proposals
of a business development or marketing nature are not appropriate. Speakers
must submit their own proposals; third-party submissions, even if authorized,
will be rejected.
Invited talk proposals are due May 17, 2010. Please email your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Guru Is In
Everyone is invited to bring perplexing technical questions to the experts at
LISA's unique Guru Is In sessions. These informal gatherings are organized
around a single technical area or topic.
The Guru Is In proposals are due May 17, 2010. Email suggestions for Guru Is In
sessions or your offer to be a Guru to email@example.com.
