Call for Proposals

We’re seeking researchers, developers, and cyberinfrastructure providers to present "lightning talks" at GlobusWorld 2017, based on your work with Globus. Presenters will include research computing leaders, system administrators, and others who use Globus at universities, national supercomputing centers, and other non-profit research facilities. Please submit proposals related to the use of Globus for research data management and collaboration, and development of 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. We seek both high-level, overview presentations, as well as targeted, technical talks focused on more narrow topics.

Please include the following in your proposal:

  • Presentation title
  • Presenter name(s) and credentials
  • Abstract (maximum 250 words including, as appropriate, a brief description of the research and links to associated publications)
  • Submission due date: March 3, 2017

Send submissions to: outreach at

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 submit all questions and correspondence to outreach at

Only 77 days left before the conference
