Ignite Strata New York 2017

Call closed 11:59pm 09/07/2017 EDT.


Ignite New York is open to all Strata Data Conference attendees and will be held Tuesday evening, September 26, following the day’s tutorials.

We’re interested in any topic as long as it’s interesting, from technology to culture to business to philosophy, particularly presentations that touch on the wonder and mysteries of big data and pervasive computing. The night includes time to network and chat, so be sure to bring business cards! We’re always looking for new speakers, but are not interested in product demos. Instead, present a how-to, a travelogue, something inspirational, lessons learned, or a forecast. Speakers are limited to 20 slides, which automatically advance after 15 seconds – that’s the fun of Ignite!

Ignite speakers receive a Bronze pass to Strata Data Conference, which includes access to keynotes, sessions, and events on Wednesday, September 27, and Thursday, September 28.
