EAGxVirtual Unconference (Saturday, June 20th 2020)

94


In addition to the main event of EAGxVirtual 2020 on June 13th and 14th, there will be another chance to speak up, present your thoughts, discuss your paper, raise a question, host a discussion…

If you think there was anything missing during the first weekend, we would love for you to join the EAGxVirtual Unconference on Saturday, June 20th. The EAGxVirtual team will provide the schedule and tech support, and will help spread the word, but we’ll need you to come up with the actual content.

This event is especially meant for people who haven’t had a chance to discuss their ideas or research with a broader audience before, or who want to get feedback on novel ideas. Your presentation could be pure theory, or a concrete proposal for a project or a startup.

Currently, we plan to have two session blocks:

  • Early sessions: 8 x 30 min. sessions from 10 AM till 12 PM GMT+2
  • Late sessions: 8 x 30 min. sessions from 7 PM till 9 PM GMT+2

Each session will last 30 minutes, and there will be 2 sessions running in parallel. Each session comprises a 15 min. talk and a 15 min. Q&A.

If you’d like to run a session, please post your proposal as a comment below, include any relevant links, and let us know whether you would prefer to be part of the early or the late sessions. The 8 pitches that receive the most votes (for the early and the late sessions respectively) by 10am CET on Monday, June 15th will be picked.

If you're not planning to present something yourself but know someone who should, please share this post with them!

Either way, we would love for you to join the Unconference and be part of the discussion. Once the schedule is finalized, we’ll post it to the Forum, the Facebook event, and the EAGxVirtual 2020 website. This event is open to everyone.

UPDATE (June 19):

We are excited to announce the speakers for the EAGxVirtual Unconference (please note that we put together the schedule based on the number of votes and the speakers’ availability to give a talk).
