Terms & Conditions for Schools, Colleges and Institutions:

Spirit/purpose: Your event must maintain the spirit of SMART TALK itself: multidisciplinary, focused on the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. SMART Talk events are not agenda or single-topic driven.

Length: Your event may not exceed one day in length.

Location: SMART TALK allocates one location-based license series per applicant; you must live in the city for which you are applying for a license. Your SMART Talk event must happen in the city for which you received the license. SMART Talk events do not travel — a SMART Talk license is valid for one locality in your city, and for one event.

Funds: SMART Talk is a volunteer endeavor. You may not use your event to make money. You may not use your event to raise funds for charities or other organizations.

Admission: You can charge an attendance fee for a SMART Talk event. Ticket collection can not be more than INR 1,00,000/- One Lakh only (including any third-party ticketing process fees) and should go towards our Account for event and operating costs.

Attendance: Up to 200 individuals may attend your event. Only individuals who have attended an official SMART TALK conference in person may organize an event with more than 100 attendees. I.e., the primary license holder — the individual whose name is on the application form — must have attended a SMART TALK conference. Having attended one or multiple SMART Talk events does not qualify you to host an event for more than 100 guests.

 

Branding + Positioning:

SMART Talk logo: Your SMART Talk logo should adhere to the SMART Talk logo style guidelines and should be used to represent your event at all times.

SMART Talk naming reference: You should refer to your event as SMART Talk. Your event name should be written with “SMART TALK” capitalized to your location-based name.

 

Licensing

License holder: SMART TALK considers the primary license holder the primary organizer of a SMART Talk event. If this is found to not be the case, SMART TALK reserves the right to revoke or not renew a license. Licensees under the age of 18 must have a supervising adult co-organizer Smart Talk on their application.

License term: Your SMART Talk license is valid for one year from its date of approval, or until the conclusion of your event — whichever comes first. You must re-apply for each subsequent event.

License Transfers: SMART Talk licenses are non-transferable — you cannot transfer your SMART Talk license to another individual. If you want to relinquish your license to allow another organizer to have it, you’ll need to notify us first. The new licensee will need to fill out his or her own application.

License renewal/relinquishment: If you decide not to renew your SMART Talk license after your SMART Talk event, or SMART TALK does not renew your license, you must transfer ownership of your SMART Talk domain name and other social properties to another SMART Talk licensee. SMART TALK cannot be held liable for expenses incurred during the purchase, transfer or re-sale of SMART Talk-relaSmart Talk domain names or other.

Programming

Format: Modeled after the SMART TALK format, SMART Talk events are a suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances on a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder — and to provoke conversations that matter. The typical presentation should be an up to 18-minute talk by a single presenter, and you may not pay your speakers to present. No panels or Q&As with audience are permitted in Smart Talk as part of main stage programming. Breakouts and workshops are permitted at SMART Talk events, but must be held during the breaks and on an opt-in basis (i.e. not required).

Multi topical and multidisciplinary: SMART Talk event themes should be multidisciplinary and broad. SMART Talk events must feature a diversity of speakers from across several disciplines that address a variety of topics. These topics should not fall under a single subject.

Introduction video: A short, official video introduction must be played at the beginning of your event. Playing this video is not optional; the purpose of the video is to make sure that your audience understands what SMART Talk is, and the difference between it and SMART TALK.

SMART TALKS: A minimum of two official, per-recorded SMART TALK Talks must be shown at events which are less than half a day in length. For longer events, 25% of the total number of talks must be official, per-recorded SMART TALK Talks from the talks library. Talks from the SMART Talk Talks YouTube Channel do not apply, unless they are also included in the SMART TALK Talks library.

Recording content: You must record all original stage content (live talks, performances, etc.) on video. After your event, you must make this video accessible to SMART TALK and the public via the SMART Talk YouTube channel by uploading to the SMART TALK Media Up loader. Talks from Internal SMART Talk events should not be uploaded to the SMART Talk YouTube channel or be distributed publicly.

Speakers

Selection: SMART Talk Organizers are responsible for procuring and handling their own speakers. SMART TALK staff do not help identify or secure speakers.

Event organizers: Organizers cannot be speakers at events to which they contribute.

Payment: SMART Talk events may never pay speakers. No one can pay to be included in the program. Speakers at your event cannot sponsor any part of your event, in-kind or otherwise.

Sponsors: Sponsors of your event cannot be speakers and can never present from the stage. See Sponsorship rules.

Duration: No talk can exceed 18 minutes in length.

Presentations: Every talk’s content must be in compliance with copyright law. Speakers must inform you beforehand of any third-party material that will be used in their presentations and seek written permissions to copyright Smart Talk materials, references, PPTs when applicable. SMART TALK cannot assist with this process or act as a consultant on individual cases.

Speaker waiver: All of your speakers, performers and other stage presenters must sign this permission release form, giving SMART TALK and others the right to edit and distribute video of their presentation. Please keep for your records, and send to SMART TALK only upon request.

Filming: Every talk must be filmed and uploaded to the SMART Talk YouTube channel (see Video rules). If the talk falls outside the content guidelines, organizers may withhold the talk. If an organizer chooses to withhold a talk, they are fully responsible for informing SMART TALK staff and then for communicating the reasoning of their actions to the speakers. No video recording by the members in the audience is allowed in any form whatsover.

Content: If talks break the Content Guidelines, we reserve the right to insist on their removal from SMART Talk branded distribution outlets, and license renewal is unlikely.

No commercial agenda: Speakers should not promote their own products, books, or businesses or those of a company which employs them. The only exception is where they have specifically been invited by Smart Talk to give a powerful product demo, or to describe the ideas in their book, and here the focus should still be on the technology and/or the ideas.

Avoid pseudoscience: SMART TALK and SMART Talk are platforms for showcasing and explaining genuine advances in science, and it’s important we retain the respect of the scientific community. Speakers should avoid the misuse of scientific language to make unsubstantial Smart Talk claims.

No talks with an inflammatory political or religious agenda, nor for polarizing “us vs them” language. We seek to build consensus and provide outside-the-box thinking, not to revisit familiar, unresolvable disputes on these topics.

Speaker products: Speakers’ books can be part of the selection at a SMART Talk event bookstore, but they cannot sell books or other items individually.

Book signings: Speakers at SMART Talk events can sign their books, but only as part of a larger book sale, and bookstore presence.

Sponsors + funding

If a prospective sponsor and their industry are not listed on Smart Talk in either of these lists, then they may contact Smart Talk without prior approval from SMART TALK.

For events with less than 100 attendees, total sponsorship funding may not exceed INR 100000/- One Lakh only in cash, this amount excludes direct cost of venue. For events with 100 attendees or less, try to reach out to as many sponsors as possible who can offer in-kind support.

The stage: Sponsors may not present from the stage. No one can pay to be included in the program. Sponsor logos cannot be displayed on a SMART Talk stage.

If the bookstore provides customized items such as t-shirts or mugs for sale at the event, Organizers can set-up a revenue share deal. Bookstores would be allowed to give out coupons in the gift bags.

Payment: Wherever possible, please have sponsors pay vendors directly.

Social media: Do not endorse your sponsors via your event’s social media properties. You are not allowed to promote your sponsors on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook or any other social media properties.

Domain squatting: You may only own the domain name that corresponds to your own event; you may not register domain names corresponding to other SMART Talk events — including prospective events that have not yet been licensed.
