Open Call for the 2014 TIG Conference RAPID FIRE TECH Session! Proposals due by November 8th.

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

If you had six minutes and 20 slides to share an idea, best practice, lesson learned, or to show off a Technology Initiative Grants (TIG) project, what would you say?

It’s that time of year again – we're accepting proposals for the 2014 TIG Conference IGNITE-style session – but this year, we’re calling it the TIG RAPID FIRE TECH session! The RAPID FIRE TECH session will be held on Thursday, January 16, 2014 at the TIG Conference in Jacksonville, Florida. Find out more about the 2014 TIG Conference.

What's a RAPID FIRE TECH session?

We are looking for short, informative presentations to share an idea, best practice, lesson learned, or to show off a TIG project. The presentation must use 20 slides which will advance every 20 seconds - so you've got six minutes and 40 seconds to tell your story. If you're not familiar with a rapid fire type of presentation, see some examples of similar formats, such as Ignite talks, TED Talks, and Pecha Kucha talks.

Proposals are due by November 8. Go to  to to find our more, and to submit your proposal.
