We realize this is a compressed schedule and we thank you for understanding.
This year, the CDI will be holding an online session for 1-minute lightning talks to help the CDI community learn about the proposed ideas.
Tuesday, February 6, 1:00-2:30pm Eastern Time, Add to Google Calendar
Each submission will have one 16:9 slide (no animations - it will be converted to PDF) and 1 minute to share their idea with the community!
Download (optional) slide template (optional): Template (pptx)
Include somewhere on your slide:
Email your slide to email@example.com by February 5, COB. Slides will be compiled, converted to PDF, and the presentation order will be sent out first thing on February 6.
One of the ways to improve your CDI Statement of Interest and final proposal is to have cross-Mission Area and cross-Center collaboration. If you have an idea for a CDI proposal but are looking for collaborators in other disciplines or centers to join you, post your idea and contact information on the collaboration forum. By posting your idea there, CDI Coordinators can help facilitate connections.
