Welcome to the CFP for BSides Nashville 2022!! We are excited to be able to plan this conference after being away for two years. We strive to have a varied and diverse set of presentations. Basic information needed for the new folks can also be a refresher for those that have been in the field for years. Feel the need to engage an audience in a presentation that extrapolates into the stratosphere? We want those too.
If this is your first BSides CFP submission, or you want to delve into some BSides history, navigate to this link to get a feel for the style that is BSides.
BSides Nashville follows a blind CFP protocol. When you submit, the platform will ask for identifying information. This information will be hidden from the evaluation team. BSides Nashville has a core foundation that includes an atmosphere of learning and inclusion. In order to provide diversity of speakers, it is important that we remove implicit bias and a blind CFP supports this. Please respect this protocol and refrain from referring to yourself by name, gender, or ethnicity in the presentation descriptions. This would not apply if, for example, you were submitting for a Green track and the presentation was specific to gender or ethnicity.
We are using a new platform this year, so if you have any issues while using it, please reach out to email@example.com. This platform requires you to create an account and validate your email.
If you need some ideas regarding format and content of a CFP, please see the sample CFP submission (adapted from the shmoocon example submission with permission). The more information you provide, the more confident we can to be in our review.
We rate submissions both on content and submission quality. Additional detail improves the submission quality score and, consequently, the overall chances of CFP acceptance. Think slightly detailed overview with enough information that we know what to expect and also want to hear more.
That said, it's better to submit with less quality than to not submit at all. We want your submission!
