DLF Spring Forum 2009: Raleigh, North Carolina

1:00 p.m., Monday, May 4th, 2009 –

Raleigh Marriott City Center
500 Fayetteville Street
Raleigh, North Carolina 27601

DLF is introducing a lightning talks session at this Forum in order to harness the energy and pluralism embodied in this unconferencing format for delivering presentations. If interested, plan for the length of your talk to be between 1 and 5 minutes. If your planning to use slides, please sign up and post them on the session wiki by noon on the day of the session. There will also be a moderator at the session who will be available to sign you up on-site. Advanced submission of your slides will allow the moderator to have all the slides available on one computer to expedite the transition from one speaker to the next.

We have listed a few resources on Raleigh for visitors.

Additional information about travel and the lightning talks can be found on the DLF Spring Forum 2009 Wiki.

Registration is now open through an online form available from http://www.regonline.com/FR109.

Individuals are responsible for making their own lodging arrangements. DLF has reserved a block of rooms at the Raleigh Marriott City Center, at the contract rate of $154/night for single and double occupancy. There is also a government rate available. Reservations can be made by contacting the hotel by phone or online. See above for contact information.

When making a reservation, mention the group code DLF. The group rate has been extended to the end of April.
