The UCSB Center for Spatial Studies invites interested speakers for the 2018 Spatial Lightning Talks on Friday, February 9 at 12:00 p.m. This annual series of 3-minute lightning talks brings together speakers from across the UCSB campus as well as the local community to enlighten the crowd on spatial topics of all sorts. This fast-paced, interdisciplinary event is a great opportunity to share your work or special interest (it doesn’t have to be academic!), and it provides experience in delivering a concise, attention-grabbing talk to a diverse audience.

Mark your calendars now, whether you are interested in giving a talk or just attending:
When: Friday, February 9, 2018 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.; lunch will be served as of 11:45 a.m.
Where: Mosher Alumni House, 2nd Floor Alumni Hall

Do you think you’re up for the challenge of presenting an interesting, spatially-relevant topic in just three minutes? We are inviting speakers to sign up by Friday, January 12. Since we are limiting the number of speakers this year, we will let you know in January whether you are selected to be one of the Spatial Lightning Talks speakers.
