Lightning Talks

Back by popular demand, COUNTERMEASURE is again offering its attendees the opportunity to give a 5-minute Lightning Talk. Take this opportunity to showcase your idea to others while hearing about theirs.


  • Share a single great idea: tell a story, present your idea, inspire your peers
  • Make it quick: you've got 5 minutes; make them count
  • Keep it original: it must be your idea and yours alone
  • Have fun: this is it! You have the stage. Show us your passion for your idea. We're cheering you on!

Submission Procedure
Sign up at the conference registration desk on November 1-2, 2018. As there are only 5-10 spots available, we suggest you to sign up as soon as you can.
