New This Year at SATURN: DEV@SATURN Talks

Posted on by in

A DEV(Design, Engineering, Vision)@SATURN talk is similar to a TED talk and concisely shares a single breakthrough technique, lesson, or experience in a passionate and inspiring way. We have a few slots available for these presentations at SATURN 2016.

DEV@SATURN talks will be particularly story based with lots of colorful images, simple charts, videos, and other visual props. They will be short: you have a maximum of 15 minutes, which will force you to focus on only what matters. Speaker delivery is critical; audiences will react equally to the message and the messenger. It will help to watch a couple of TED talks to get a sense of the style. Remember, there will be a select few of these sessions in the technical program, so submit a proposal for this session type only if you believe you have the right topic and delivery style to delight your SATURN community.

Your DEV@SATURN talk will really ignite your audience when you focus on using stories and pictures. The 4D outline is a great tool to help you think about your purpose for each point and how you want to convey that point. With this tool, you can create an exciting presentation that drives home what you want your audience to remember.

We look forward to seeing your proposals!


The 12th SEI Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) Conference 2016 will be held at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina in San Diego, California, May 2-5, 2016.

The SATURN 2016 Call for Submissions is now open.
