"Enlighten us, but make it quick!” is the slogan of Ignite Talks.
What is an Ignite Talk?
Ignite Talks are short and fast-paced and each talk is 5 minutes with 20 slides that automatically advance at short intervals. The presentations are meant to ignite the audience on a subject or an idea that you think is worth sharing.
Use this opportunity to share your ideas!
Ignite Next Library is an opportunity for Next Library participants to share innovative projects of international relevance with other Next Library participants. Next Library is all about network and conversations about the library of the future. We hope the Ignite Next Library will enhance the opportunity to connect up-coming library innovators and experienced professionals across the world.
For speakers: The Ignite Format
The Ignite format is a 5 minutes long presentation with 20 slides and with the slides advancing automatically every 15 seconds. It is a very challenging format and you should prepare it carefully.
When you have prepared content for your 20 slides you should make sure that they advance automatically in Powerpoint/Keynote.
