Greetings, Humans and Robots! Security BSides Orlando is now accepting paper submissions for our upcoming conference, scheduled for October 7, 2023.
All session times are hard limits, and presenters must plan time for Q&A during this time.
You must select at least one time/format for your presentation and can elect to submit to all three. If you would like to be considered for more than one format, you must describe in your submission how you would modify your presentation to adjust for the difference in length/format.
When crafting your submission, please provide as much detail as possible, including a detailed outline. The outline should give the reviewer an idea of how your talk will flow, the depth of your presentation, and how it will fit within the time constraint.
If your session presentation includes a hands-on demo (either live or recorded), please provide a high-level idea of what attendees can expect to see, the resources you'll need, and how you'll prepare for your demo.
In Case of Non-Acceptance:
Not all can be accepted given the high volume and quality of submissions. However, we value your effort and contribution and encourage you to submit your presentation to another conference or consider presenting it as a 15-minute session during the Unconference at BSides Orlando.
Anonymity in Review:
The CFP review will be anonymous; please do not include any biographical or identifying information in your proposal or the notes section. The identifying information is hidden from reviewers to facilitate a fair review of all submissions. *Submissions received with identifying information exposed to reviewers may be excluded from consideration.

You can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about your submission or about submitting in general.
Can I submit a talk that has been presented somewhere else?
Yes, but it may not be accepted if it has already been presented and recorded at another large conference. Good content may be accepted even if it has been presented before.
Where can I submit my proposal to host a workshop for BSides?
