2019 Summit Plenary Flash Talks

Plenary Flash Talks


Flash Talks are brief presentations modeled on Ignite Talks (http://www.ignitetalks.io/), in which presenters are given 20 slides that will automatically advance every 15 seconds. The result is a fast, informative, and fun presentation which lasts just 5 minutes. This year’s Flash Talks will consist of five presentations by ITEST projects whose work connects to our conference theme, Living, Learning, and Working in the Digital Age. Presentations will be given in two sets. After each set, tables will to engage in prompted discussion.
