CFP 2018

[ CFP is Now Closed!! ]

Welcome to the CFP for the 2018 edition of BSides Delhi

We are looking for some awesome submissions in the following categories:

  • Technical Talks (35-40 minutes)
  • Workshops (2-3 Hours)
  • Sub-events / Villages (2-3 Hours)
  • Lightning Talks (15-20 minutes)

Technical Talks: If you have something interesting to talk about your innovative information security research this is the track for you. Submit your research to interactively present / discuss with our participants and get feedback, input and opinion.

Workshops: These are workshops and classes to give participants hands-on experience learning the latest and greatest. We are accepting proposals for 1/2 day workshops.

Sub-events / Villages: These are any sub-events that you want to run in parallel to talks and workshops. Some examples of sub-events include (but not limited to) a hack-a-thon to find bugs in open source applications, a lock pick village to help participants learn and try lock picking skills or even a panel discussion on a security issue you care for.

Lightning Talks: A Lightning Talk is an informal ~15 minute presentation where one can speak about a topic they care about. These are short duration talks not meant to be deep dive rather provide an overview of a certain topic. Example topics can be something like Demystifying CSP, LANGSEC 101, Bypassing WAF, etc.
