EAGxVirtual Unconference (Saturday, June 20th 2020)

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).
