Do you have an idea for a spatially-oriented topic you can summarize in just 3 minutes? Spatial@UCSB is looking for intrepid presenters – students, faculty, staff, and friends – to give inspirational, educational, or just plain entertaining talks related to geography or space (i.e., just about anything). These talks are limited to 3 minutes per presenter, so it’s crucial to be efficient in your delivery and use more visuals than text. This is also a great chance to practice your Grad Slam-style presentation skills! For inspiration, watch videos of past years' talks. Participants from all departments and disciplines are welcome.

To present in the 2016 Spatial Lightning Talks, contact Crystal Bae by February 15 (preferably sooner).

What: 5th Annual Lightning Talks presented by spatial@ucsb
When: Monday, February 29 (lunch provided starting at 11:45 a.m., presentations begin at noon)
Where: Student Resource Building, Multipurpose Room
