17:00 - 18:00 Elevator Pitch Session Moderator: Jon Crowcroft (University of Cambridge)
The elevator-pitch session is open to all Sigcomm attendees and is inviting speakers to participate. Each speaker will be allocated 5 minutes of time in which they will pitch a potentially new and possibly commercializable idea to the audience and a panel of judges. The structure of this presentation will be a like a mini-business competition, but we would like speakers to focus on the technical aspects and the practical relevance of the idea. The topic has to relate to mobile handhelds in some way. You can choose to use slides or any other props for the presentation. Or you can speak without slides if that suits your style.

The event is open to all Sigcomm attendees. Students are especially encouraged to participate. Judges (and the audience) will evaluate all presentations to select winners. Awards will be made for best presentations and ideas.

Please contact the moderator, Jon Crowcroft, by sending him email (his email address is available through his homepage) to express your interest in participating.

We will accept upto 10 speakers for this session, so early responses will help.

18:00 - 18:10 Closing remarks and elevator-pitch session awards
