Call for Presentations
Presentation submissions could include but not limited to in-progress research, curriculum under development, current developments in Microsoft technology, success stories or other topics of interest to the Microsoft Educational community. Submissions should include an abstract of no more than one page describing the presentation. Accepted presentation submissions will be presented at the conference.
A specific presentation format will be highlighted at the conference: Lightning Round Presentations. This type of presentation, usually around 10 minutes in length, is designed to be short and concise. The presentations will be delivered one after another within a set block of time. By including Lightning Round Presentations at the conference, there will be more time to have many faculty speakers present a multitude of topics. Your goal as a presenter is to articulate your topic in a quick and impactful way.
Please note presentations will be scheduled as Lightning Round Presentations, breakout sessions, or roundtable sessions as determined by the event sponsors. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding the presentation formats.
For presentation submissions, email your content to email@example.com by April 5th, 2017. Please include an abstract of no more than one page describing the presentation.
