"Emerging Topics" Track

Want to speak at CAST, need more than a lightning talk, don’t want to write a paper? No problem!

This year we are featuring a new track called “Emerging Topics.” Think of it as a cross between a lightning talk and a normal track session.

How does it work?

  • Each talk will be approximately 20 minutes, with at least 5 minutes for discussion
  • The community voted and commented on each proposal, votes and comments influenced the proposal selection
