By | Events | No Comments

Ignite with a Twist 

Call for Participants

Are you an IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN) student currently working on a leading-edge future technology that will change business, society, or everyday life? Share your experiences and vision with peers and leading technologists at the IEEE Technology Time Machine 2018 (TTM 2018) conference.

The IEEE Technology Time Machine 2018 (TTM 2018) conference will offer attendees from research and industry innovative insights from top executives and pioneers regarding the impact of future technologies on business and industry, society and everyday life, ethics, and policy. Through interactive participation and stimulating panels, TTM 2018 will provide critical information on technological advances to help guide current and future decisions on use and implementation of these technologies Beyond Tomorrow. Speakers and attendees will network and learn from each other through synergies across technologies in industry, academia, and government, including in the areas of augmented and virtual reality, agriculture, neuroscience, robotics, technology entrepreneurism, and more.

To promote awareness of leading-edge research currently being performed in universities, IEEE-HKN is sponsoring Ignite with a Twist talks at TTM 2018.

 

Participation

Participation is open to conference attendees only. To participate, please send an email to ttminfo@ieee.org.

 

Format

Typically, Ignite presenters use 20 slides that advance every 15 seconds to lay the foundation for a 5-minute talk. The Ignite with a Twist talks will be 5 minutes, but instead of slides, some sort of small prop(s) can be used to support the talk. One simple example, if you are working on robotics, you can show an R2-D2 figure while describing past robotic limitations then launch into the future of robotics as shown through your work. This is a chance to be creative and have fun while showcasing your great discoveries!

 

Typical Ignite presentations have the following ‘format’:

  • Hook
  • Background information
  • Evidence
  • Call to action / Future research or plan

 

The goal of the Ignite with a Twist talk is to articulate a topic in a quick, insightful, and clear manner. These concise and efficient talks are intended to grab the attention of the audience, convey the salient information, and spark interest in future activities.

 

Evaluation

You are expected to provide a short abstract (250 – 400 words) on your topic. Presenters will be selected based on the following criteria in their abstract:

  • Topic of interest to TTM 2018 (see keywords below)
  • Significance of future impact
  • Clarity and relevance
  • Uniqueness of topic in the future of technology

 

Send your abstract to ttminfo@ieee.org with the subject “IEEE TTM 2018 Ignite with a Twist.”

 

 

Timeline

  • Monday 1 October 2018 – Final submission of abstracts
  • Wednesday 17 October 2018 – Notification of acceptance
  • Wednesday 31 October 2018 6:30 pm – Ignite with a Twist talks

 

Keywords

Agricultural Food Systems, Artificial Intelligence & Ethics, Autonomous Vehicles & Systems, Biological Neuroprosthetics, Blockchain, Cybersecurity, Green Communications, Augmented/Virtual/Mixed Reality, Programmable Genomics, Quantum Computing, Social Implications of Technology
