INTERESTED IN SPEAKING
Many speakers will share their expertise at the LMD Conference 2019. We are working on getting the most innovative and forward thinking experts and solution providers to offer you real case studies.
Do you have a project or case study you want to share with the community?
MEET THE SPEAKERS
LMD has made changes to the session formats this year and we’ve added an exciting new opportunity called “Bright Spots and Great People”. We will also be offering fewer simultaneous sessions at the conference. While this means there may be fewer opportunities to present, we think the impact will be greater! We continue to make every effort to include as many people as possible on the conference program.
Please read the following descriptions carefully and apply for the format most appropriate to your presentation.
The approximate number per stand of each type of session is subject to change.
20 Minute Presentation with 5 Minute Q&A
Traditional presentations focus on a single topic or program, typically including a media presentation. AV equipment provided. Must send your presentation in advance and use computer provided. (3 on each topic accepted)
BRIGHT SPOTS AND GREAT PEOPLE
NEW THIS YEAR!
Bright spots and great people are student talks that celebrate specific designs and triumphs showcasing their work in the relevant fields.
Each presenter will have 10 minute to highlight such things as important research, designs, achievements and more. Presentations will be presented back-to-back during a 60 minute session. Presenters will also have work posters in the poster section of the conference expanding on their 10 minute talk. This is a great opportunity for students to gain entry into the industry and challenge the way the industry is thinking and producing.
PREPARING SUCCESSFUL PROPOSALS
LMD is looking for dynamic presentations that celebrate success, challenge our thinking and push the design envelope!
A team of reviewers for each theme evaluates and rates all concurrent session proposals. Theme leaders conduct a final review. Reviewers consider the following questions when evaluating proposals; please consider them carefully as you write your session descriptions. Provide enough detail for reviewers to fully understand your plans.
- Does the presentation inform about proven practices, push the leading edge of the industry and motivate the pursuit of excellence?
- Does the proposal adequately explain what will be covered in the session? How engaging is the presentation likely to be?
- How well suited is the proposed presentation to the preferred session format?
