To: DML Hub <dmlhub at hri.uci.edu>


Call for Proposals: Ignite Talks (Please Circulate, Apologies for
Cross Postings)

Do you have a creative idea around the future of education and
learning that you want to share? Are you excited about new
possibilities or way of thinking? Are you ready to explore your ideas
with a diverse and engaged community?

We're looking for a few courageous souls who want to get their early
stage ideas out there in a short, spunky format - an Ignite Talk - at
the DML2011 Conference. Ignite talks are radically different from
traditional conference talks. We're looking for humor, wit, energy and
inspiration to be packed into one powerful five-minute talk. Visual
and conceptual impact are also a must.

If you haven't seen an ignite talk, be sure to do a quick search for
"ignite talks" to watch some of the thousands of Ignite Talks out
there or check out these sites for a quick tutorial:




If you still feel focused and inspired, send an email to
dmlhub at hri.uci.edu with the following details before 9am PST on
Monday, February 7th:
