Important Dates

  • CFP Closes: 3/13/2018
  • CFP Responses Sent: 3/31/2018

CFP Guideline

We are looking for a variety of topics to be presented at this year’s con. Additionally, this year, we are seeking a mix of shorter, simple talks and longer, more detailed talks. We’re targeting 20 and 50 minutes respectively.

We are generally looking for any kind of security/hacking related talks. But specifically to match our theme, we’d love to see presentations regarding:

  • Cryptography
  • Secure Communications
  • Secure Desktops/OS
  • Privacy
  • Anonymity/Pseudonymity
  • Embedded Systems or IoT
  • Mobile (OS, application, baseband, etc.)
  • Application Security
  • Network Penetration Testing
  • DFIR
  • Hacker Community and infosec industry perspectives
  • Tool release

Our team will review any talk submission but our only rule is that we will not accept a talk about a service or product you or your employer is selling. Please make all talks technical in nature.

Who Is The Audience?

When considering a submission for BSidesROC, it may be helpful to consider who our attendees have been in the past. Check out our /about page that gives you some details about our demographics. We have a mix of students and professionals but in general, management/sales slides do not go over well in this crowd.
