The Center for Dark Energy Biosphere Investigations (C-DEBI)
is a “networked” Science and Technology Center
(STC), gathering expertise, ideas, and participation from
institutions across the U.S. and around the world. C-DEBI
runs the Networked Speaker Series as one means to enhance
communication and the exchange of ideas via short (30 minute)
presentations with time for questions and discussion. The
series is presented live online for remote participants, and
is recorded and available on the website for those unable
to "attend" the live events.
|How To Connect To The Live Broadcast
Instructions will be sent via the C-DEBI
mailing list on how to listen to the talk and participate
in the Q&A online. The Networked Speaker Series is broadcast
as an Adobe Connect videoconference run through your internet
browser (Firefox is recommended) via Adobe Flash player and
thus may require a small add-in (test
your connection beforehand). The presentation will be
recorded and available on the website for those unable to
"attend" the live web event.

C-DEBI seeks nominations for the next three speakers for this program. Potential speakers
can be nominated by colleagues, mentors, or those mentored
by C-DEBI participants; they can also self nominate. Selected C-DEBI Networked Speakers will make a presentation
online, using video conferencing tools, with assistance from
the C-DEBI main office at USC. Presentations are to be about
30 minutes in length, with time allocated for questions and
discussion. Networked viewers can participate in Q&A via
their own web camera and speaker/microphone or by chat.
We would like to have three presentations during the 2013-2014
academic year, ideally one in the fall, one in the winter,
and one in the spring. No travel will be required either to
make a presentation or to listen/participate in a presentation.
Presentations will be recorded for later online playback by
participants or those who could not "attend" the
live web event.
Nominated C-DEBI Networked Speakers should be capable
of combining compelling visual materials with the ability
to communicate effectively to a broad audience. We are particularly
enthusiastic about giving young researchers a chance to present
work to the C-DEBI community. Being selected to be a C-DEBI
Networked Speaker is an honor. Once speakers are selected,
presentation dates and times for presentations will be determined
and announced, along with instructions for connecting over
version of the C-DEBI Networked Speaker Series nominations
