Put the Lightning Talks session on your schedule for Friday afternoon. You’ll be glad you did. It’s the session that’s planned to be unplanned. It’s cavers doing the thing they do best: showing off. Please, feel free to participate with a 5-minute (or so) presentation. Or just attend and enjoy. The atmosphere is casual and friendly.
A lightning talk can be about almost anything. Show us a cool thing you found. Tell us a little about a big project, or a lot about a little project. Regale us with a humble brag or an atrocious anecdote. It doesn’t have to be really true, but we request that you keep it pretty short. You may be on the professional speaking tour, or this may be the first time you’ve talked at an NSS Convention. Awesome! Come on down! You’ve got 5 minutes (or so). No pre-registration necessary.
