Your talk can be as one of the following formats:
+ Light Talk "Rookie Track": 15 min
+ Short talk: 25 min
+ Long talk: 40 min
After each talks session, speakers move to separate rooms where attendees who are interested in their talks can join them and engage in active discussions along with snacks and coffee.
So, we have setted up some side-discussion tables where speakers and attendees can continue chatting about the talk’s topic in a more easy way.
You will be prompted to join your table as a speaker. :) We suggest to end your presentation with questions to interest the audience in further chatting.
The purpose of the "Rookie Track" is to give those who have not previously given a talk the opportunity to do so,
whether you are a student still at university, someone who has recently made the conversion to security or someone who has been in the industry for years.
So, we have 'Rookie Track' to give you an opportunity to be a speaker and mentors will be available to help you during submission processes.
Topics of interest are (of course not limited to):
+ Binary exploitation
+ Vulnerability hunting
+ Reverse engineering
+ Hardware security
+ Network security
+ Web security
+ Mobile security
+ Digital forensics
+ Applied cryptography
+ Secure coding
+ Social engineering
+ Malware analysis
+ Defensive and offensive strategies
+ Wireless security
After the CFP deadline, our review board have 1 month to look over all submissions and give a score to each proposal. A rejection and an acceptance lists will be built based on the given scores.
The proposals with the highest score will move to the first batch of acceptance notice and strong rejections will be immediately sent out too.
The board allows 1 week for the accepted proposals' speakers to respond. If the accepted speaker doesn't respond, doesn't want to or can't attend anymore, the board will move on with the next highest scored proposals in the acceptance list.
Once the conference program is full, the board starts to provide feedback for the remaining submissions. We hope to manage notifying all the confirmed speakers at least 15 days before the conference date.
The final agenda and talks abstracts will be out by January 15, 2020!!!
!! The talk and slides must be in English and we accept to be in Arabic.
Your talk will NOT be picked IF:
+ It’s a sale pitch or review of a single product.

Submissions will be reviewed by our CFP Review Board and will be chosen on a "number of votes" basis.
