Pop-up Talks

11:00am–5:00pm Wednesday, 09/12/2018
Location: Hall 1A

Pop-up Talks is an “unconference” within Strata—an open, community-driven format where you can connect with other attendees on topics that you want to discuss. Attendees schedule discussions on the sign-up board and lead the conversations, emphasizing participation over presentations.

Pop-up Talks is about sharing data stories, from successes and challenges to open questions—and is a great way to network.

How do I sign up to lead a talk?

Pop-up Talks will be completely self-served, with talks being scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis on the sign-up board. Simply come by the Pop-up Talks area in Hall 1A and sign up to lead a session.
The sign-up board will be up starting Tuesday, September 11, at 9:00am in Hall 1A.
