Call for Papers

Do you feel like you have something incredible to share with the world? Now is your chance! There are several slots open for full time speakers at Security Fest 2019, which will be held in Gothenburg on May 23rd-24th, 2019. The deadline is not set yet, but talks are being selected as they come in, so send in your contribution today! We are also looking for trainings this year, but the details are still being ironed out. If you have an idea for a training session (one or two days), please include it with your CFP.

For inspiration, or to get a hint on the kinds of talks we are likely to accept, please check out some of our previous talks here or on our Security Fest Youtube channel!

To collect all the required information, we would like answers to the following questions:

The abstract and speaker biography will be displayed on the Security Fest website for accepted speakers. The speaker biography should be written in third person and cover your history in IT security, other publications or projects. Also describe why you are the best person to give this presentation. Lastly we need a detailed outline with the main points of your presentation. Describe how you will begin, how you will entice the audience and how the talk will end. The outline will help us during the presentation review and make it easier to figure out how to best fit your talk in the schedule.

As a speaker at Security Fest, your travel, accommodation in Gothenburg, and food expenses will be paid for (including lunch and dinner, speakers dinner etc). You will also receive free admission to the conference. A prize will be given to the best speaker at the end of the conference. Email your submission to [email protected] along with all the information described above.
