Submit a Lightning Talk for the

2024 practitioner workshop

Making the Most Out of Five Minutes: 2024 Practitioner Workshop Lightning Talk Round

Lightning talks are fast-paced, 5-minute presentations that are meant to be fun and informative. Since the 2016 Practitioner Workshop, lightning talks have provided a dynamic platform to highlight innovative HiAP- and HIA-related work and resources.

Capitalizing on the theme of the workshop, we want to hear about your research or real-world applications. For example, maybe you want to talk about how you have leveraged resources or relationships in a unique way, utilized outcomes from an HIA to create more lasting policy change, or share about an unexpected positive outcome from health in all policies work. 


Presenters develop 15 slides, have them automatically advance every 20 seconds, and develop a narrative to deliver as the slides advance. For an example of how this works, please check out the Pecha Kucha website.

Submission process:

In an abstract of less than 200 words, tell us about your lightning talk idea. We encourage you to be creative in your thinking about how you frame and present your work! Abstracts are due no later than 11:59 p.m. PDT on Friday, January 26th, 2024. Submit online using the online form.

Review and selection of speakers will take place a week after and all speakers will be notified via email by Friday February 9th, 2024. The selection committee is looking for talks that are creative, engaging, and/or out of the box!

Selected speakers will join the selection committee for an online rehearsal prior to the April workshop. We look forward to receiving your lightning talk ideas. Don’t delay! Submissions will fill up fast…lightning fast!
