TEDx Syracuse University Issues Call for Speakers
Student organizers for the TEDx SyracuseUniversity conference, planned for April 22, have announced a call for speakers for the event.
The one-day conference will bring together thought leaders from Syracuse’s technology, entertainment and design backgrounds to host short lectures on local issues and popular trends.
Speaker applications can be filled out online. The application deadline is Jan. 30. Conference organizers encourage anyone with an idea they wish to share with the Syracuse and TEDx communities to apply for a speaking slot.
Speakers who advance through the first round of applications will be notified by Monday, Feb. 6. Interviews will be held Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 16-18. Finalists will need to accept their speaking slot by Monday, Feb. 20.
TEDx stems from the original TED events that promote the mantra “ideas worth spreading”—where international leaders in their fields gather to speak and find inspiration from one another. The “x” denotes a local conference that seeks to educate and engage communities around the world.
The School of Information Studies will help support the fourth annual TEDx Syracuse University event that empowers individuals to spread ideas that impact the community.
