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 9, 2017. As there are only 5-10 spots available, we suggest you to sign up as soon as you can.
