Call for Lightning Talks (Extended Deadline: November 23, 2023)

CoCoNet'23 ( will feature lightning talks—ten-minute presentations delivered sequentially without interruption. The purpose of a lightning talk is not to provide a detailed presentation but to briefly convey the main points. Topics acceptable for talks can include any subject related to the conference. The Lightning Talk sessions will likely take place on the 18th (Monday) or 19th (Tuesday) of December.

Lightning Talk proposals can be submitted only through the EDAS Portal and must be received by November 23, 2023. By submitting an abstract, the presenting author indicates their availability during any of the possible time slots.

To submit your proposal, log in to EDAS and upload a PDF containing the following details:

  1. Name, Affiliation:
  2. Email Address:
  3. Mobile Number:
  4. Title of the Talk:
  5. Abstract for the Talk:
  6. Date of Preference (18th or 19th):
  7. Short bio and URL:
  8. Link to Google Scholar Profile (if available):
  9. If you are a registered author, mention the Name of the Track, EDAS Paper-ID, and Paper Title

Please also specify in your proposal if you anticipate requiring a few extra minutes to cover your topic. Presentation slots are limited, but we will try to accommodate as many proposals as possible. Due to time constraints, only one presenter is permitted for each Lightning Talk presentation. Speakers must be present at the start of the session, or their slot will be forfeited to the next speaker signed up. The presentation must conclude within 10 minutes.

The talks will be selected by the committee and announced on this page before 28th of November. There is no separate registration fee for registered authors/attendees and TPC members of CoCoNet'23 and ACN'23 to conduct a lightning talk.  A certificate of presentation will be issued to the speakers (only e-certificates).

If you have any questions, please contact us at
