Please add your lightning talk for the FOSSASIA Summit 2018 here.


Lightning Talks are short lectures (almost) any conference participant may give!


Bring your infectious enthusiasm to an audience with a short attention span! Discuss a program, software, hardware, system or technique! Pitch your projects and ideas or try to rally a crew of people to join you! Whatever you bring, make it quick!


Lightning talk sessions are taking place on Saturday/Day 3 and Sunday/Day 4 of the event.

Please have a look at the session schedule of the lightning talk slots. The lightning talks have a slot of either 5 or 10 minutes including setup.


Lightning talk registration is open! Just enter your information on this Wiki page (in the table below). There is no registration deadline. We assign timeslots on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you plan on giving your talk on a specific day, submit it here as soon as possible. However there is a review to ensure the lightning talks rules (see below) are kept.

To submit your own Lightning Talk, there are several steps necessary:

  1. Sign up as a user of this wiki ("Create account" link on the top right of the page)
  2. Fill in details here that describes your Lightning Talk
  3. Upload your slides somewhere and place a link to the slides into the lightning talks table
  4. One week before the event: Ensure the details are correct and the pdf is working

Some more rules:

  • Technical talks are preferred (no sales pitches)
  • Only one lightning talk per person/project/group per day
  • PDF slides only
  • Final time slot assignment only if we have slides. Preliminary slides are okay, you can update your slides until 10:00 am on the day before the talk.


The exact lightning talks session slot will be decided asap.
