We have reserved one hour of the NANOG 40 agenda for "Lightning Talks".

A lightning talk is a very short presentation or speech by any  
attendee on
any topic relevant to the NANOG audience. These are limited to ten  
this will be strictly enforced.

If you have a topic that's timely, interesting, or even a crackpot  
idea you
want to share, we encourage you to consider presenting it.

The Program Committee will decide which submissions are relevant (using
criteria based on the NANOG mailing list AUP) and choose the best six
to be presented.

Use of slides is optional. All slides must be in PDF or Powerpoint  
and will be loaded in advance onto the speaker laptop on the podium.

There is a good overview of the use of lightning talks at the Perl
conference at

Although their format is slightly different, many of their ideas will
apply here.

See you in Bellevue!
