About the Ignite Sessions

Ignite talks are radically different from traditional conference talks. We're looking for humor, wit, energy and inspiration to be packed into one powerful five-minute talk. Visual and conceptual impact is also a must. To view ignite talks from last year's DML Conference, click here.

If you haven't seen an ignite talk, be sure to do a quick search for "ignite talks" to watch some of the thousands of Ignite Talks out there or check out these sites for a quick tutorial:

Please note that selected participants must pay for their own registration, as well as arrange and fund their own travel to/from DML2013.

Ignite Talk Proposal Deadline: February 8, 2013 (closed to further submissions).
