Talk Content and Length

Technical talks at Throughput Computing 23 should typically be 20 minutes long, including time for questions. We try to keep talks on schedule, so aim for approximately a 15 - 18 minute presentation.


Throughput Computing offers a diverse audience. It includes system administrators who manage HTCondor pools as well as end users who are just learning how to use HTCondor. It also includes OSPool users and administrators. Some people have computer science backgrounds, while others are scientists, campus representatives or managers. 


If you are an end-user talking about how you use the OSPool or HTCondor, try to balance the description of your work with the description of how you use the OSPool or HTCondor. If you are a system administrator, search for a balance between the nitty gritty details and the big picture.


But above all, don't worry too much about your talk. Throughput Computing attendees are a relaxed crowd that enjoys learning more about the OSPool, HTCondor and how people use these systems. Don't feel that you must have formal results in order to present; we also like to hear talks such as what you hope to achieve, activities that have recently started, or areas where you think OSPool or HTCondor could improve.

Sending or Uploading Your Slides

We will need your slides in advance of your presentations so we can have them ready and on-screen when your talk begins. 


Please email your slides, ideally in both PDF and Powerpoint format to htc23@path.cc.io


If you have an Indico account (event site), you may also upload them directly yourself, if you prefer. (Some speakers do not have Indico accounts).

  1. Open the Schedule Page.
  2. Log in to the Indico platform. The Login button is in the top-right corner.
  3. Find your talk on the Schedule page. You'll notice a downwards arrow button to the right of your talk listing. Click this button and select "Add material".
  4. In the dialog that appears, upload your slides, ideally in both PDF and PowerPoint formats.

If you do not want your slides displayed publicly, please contact us at htc23@path.cc.io to make alternate arrangements.


Please meet the moderator for your session (posted on the agenda) at the end of the previous session or shortly before your session begins. This is your opportunity to ensure the moderator will correctly pronounce your name during the introduction and to sort out last-minute questions and issues.


Five minutes before you are scheduled to speak, please head to the front left side of the hall. Your moderator will meet you there and will help you get set up with the microphone and get you set up at the podium.
