Ignite is back at Strata + Hadoop World on Monday, October 28. The theme reflects the conference’s focus on data science and visualization, with an emphasis on the wonder and mysteries that data science is stumbling into. Join us for a fun, high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by the NYC data community, all aspiring to live up to the Ignite motto: Enlighten us, but make it quick.

We’re interested in any topic as long as it’s interesting, from technology to culture to business to science. We’re always looking for new speakers, but please no product demos. Instead, present a how-to, a travelogue, something inspirational, lessons learned, or an interesting story. Speakers are limited to 20 slides, which automatically advance after 15 seconds—*that’s the fun of Ignite!*
