*Proposal Options*

Presentations: 45 minute time slot for solo or co-presenters. Please
remember to allow time for questions from the audience.

Workshops: A new session type for Online Northwest. This is a chance to
discuss and accomplish a hands-on task, most likely with your audience
participating using a laptop, tablet, or Smartphone. Consider the
limitations: 45 minutes, a presentation computer, and wifi (with
potentially limited bandwidth) for the audience. Please note what
preparations or devices the audience should have with them in the notes
field of the proposal form

Panel session: Invite professional colleagues to discuss a topic as a
panel. To keep the conversation engaging and informative, consider inviting
panelists with different perspectives on the topic. As the moderator, allow
time for audience questions.

 Lightning talks: An audience favorite! 5 minutes to blaze through a topic.
Presentation slides are usually timed, but we are flexible as long as your
talk ends within 5 minutes and is informative and engaging.
