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 space—geographic or otherwise—figures prominently. Both serious and lighthearted presentations are welcomed, as long as they stick to the Ignite Talks mantra, “Enlighten us, but make it quick.”
The event will be held online 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 worldwide.
Please feel free to share this invitation with colleagues and friends.
