SF Bay ACM Chapter Message Board › Opportunity to Present - ACM Data Mining Un-Conference October 13, 2012
Mountain View, CA
YOU can present, or you can ask someone else to present, someone that you have seen, or that has expertise to share - got it?
At this un-Conference, we have a short session at the beginning where YOU or any Presenter, stands up to give a short description of their presentation.
After listening to the presentation ideas, attendees decide which sessions they want to attend, and a session schedule is then generated. The Data Mining Camp has a keynote from Andrew NG at 9:45. To propose a session, we recommend you be on-site no later than 11:15 AM; better still come at the start for the keynote and morning networking.
The types of sessions you could propose are Lightning Talks, Panels, and 50-minute Full Sessions. Choose whichever you feel is best for your content. Some guidelines are:
· A Lightning Talk is 5-7 minutes long. That is enough time for a few quick slides to cover your material. It is a great way to easily connect with people having similar interests.
· Panel Sessions – Propose a panel and we’ll help you find other panel members. Or call some colleagues and competitors and show up with a complete ready-to-go panel. Panels are 50 minute slots.
· 50 minute Full Sessions are the most in-depth opportunity to present your content. You could do a long talk (30-40 minutes, with just a little Q&A), a short talk (10-15 minutes, with the balance of the time for discussion or for other related short talks), or you could do a tutorial (a model successfully used by software vendors at previous Data Mining Camps.)
Because this is an unconference, you must register as an attendee, even if you are planning to present. The conference is free. Even if you are not interested in presenting, please join us as an attendee.
