Call for Proposals

We're seeking Globus users, managers and providers to present "lightning talks" at GlobusWorld 2019. Presenters will include research computing leaders, system administrators, and others who use Globus at universities, national supercomputing centers, and other research facilities.

Please submit presentation proposals related to the use of Globus for research data management and collaboration, and development of solutions or applications that leverage the Globus platform. Your presentation should emphasize the unique capabilities delivered by your solution and/or the impact of Globus on the research being conducted, with concrete lessons learned, insights and tips that your colleagues in the audience will find useful. We seek both high-level, overview presentations as well as targeted, technical talks focused on more narrow topics.

Submission Guidelines

Abstracts should provide the technical substance required for the program committee to evaluate the session’s contribution to the Globus community, without the need for further correspondence. If the presentation was given at another conference, please note the name, date, and location of the event in the submission. Abstracts for accepted submissions will be published on the GlobusWorld website and in other conference material, and made available to conference attendees.

Lightning talks will be limited to 10 minutes in length, including time for Q&A, and may be grouped by topic, depending on the number of submissions received.

Please complete the form below to submit your proposal; questions and correspondence may be directed to outreach at
