Submit Lightning Talk

The Call for Presentations (CfP) deadline has passed but lightning talk proposals can still be submitted.


The following general requirements apply:

  • Lightning talks are short (5-10 minutes) presentations covering any topic that may or may not include slides. The presenter can choose how much of this time to spend on their presentation versus Q&A.
  • Lightning talks should be submitted using the meeting submission system. The allocation of lightning talks will be announced on short notice – in some cases on the same day but often one day prior to the time slot allocated.
  • All presentation proposals will only be considered by the PC if they contain at least draft presentation slides (slides may be updated later on).
  • RIPE Meeting attendees are quite sensitive to keeping presentations non-commercial, and product marketing talks are strongly discouraged. Repeated audience feedback shows that the most successful talks focus on operational experience, research results, or case studies. For example, presenters wishing to describe a commercial solution should focus on the underlying technology and should not attempt a product demonstration.

Diversity and Inclusion – The RIPE Meeting Code of Conduct

To ensure that RIPE Meeting values are upheld and that attendees experience a professional, respectful and safe meeting is a priority, please read the RIPE Meeting Code of Conduct.
