Format of Presentations
We are now seeking proposals for presentations at the mini-conference. We
have openings for:
45 minute double-length presentations
15-20 minute full presentations
5-10 minute "lightning talks"
Please note, due to the single day available (and whole-LCA keynote before
morning tea), we expect the majority of available timeslots to be 20
minutes or less. We have a general policy of accepting a high proportion
of proposals but handing out relativly short timeslots. Please see
previous years Miniconf schedules for examples.
