Inspired by the Ignite Talks, the Spatial Lightning Talks feature intrepid presenters who have three minutes to deliver their idea, story, or message. Topics may be wide-ranging, as long as they somehow relate to space, broadly interpreted. Both serious and lighthearted presentations are welcomed, as long as they stick to the mantra, “Enlighten us, but make it quick.”

The event will be held on Airmeet, which runs best in the Chrome browser. This year, we are again pleased to welcome presenters from across the US and several countries around the world. After all presentations, there will be an opportunity for presenters and attendees to interact through virtual tables (i.e., video chatrooms) in Airmeet’s Social Lounge.

Please feel free to share this invitation with colleagues and friends who may be interested in this fast-paced entertainment.
