TEDxUND2015 organizers at the University of Notre Dame announced Monday (Sept. 22) that they are accepting speaker applications now through Oct. 12 (Sunday) for the 2015 event. TEDxUND will take place on Feb. 27 (Friday) at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.
With a theme of “What if…,” TEDxUND 2015 is designed to showcase the ideas and talents of the Notre Dame community in engaging 12-minute presentations. This year’s speaker application process is open to students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members, and is available at tedx2015.nd.edu.
Last year, the University’s TEDxUND program featured event speakers and participants that sparked deep discussion and connection around the topic “Creating Knowledge Together.” The 2014 TEDxUND presentations can be viewed here.
About TEDx, where x = independently organized event
In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDxUND strives to recreate the unique experience found at TED, where the world’s leaders, thinkers and doers congregate to share what they are most passionate about.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to “ideas worth spreading.” It started in 1984 as a conference that brought together people from three worlds: technology, entertainment and design. Since then, its scope has become ever broader, including two annual conferences: the TED Conference on the West Coast each spring and the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, each summer. TED also now includes the award-winning TED Talks video website. For more information, go to www.ted.com.
