What is BSides?
Each BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening.
This year our focus will be on a theme that has been on in the technology sector for the last 25 years, but only now is it breaking into marketing and hype. You guessed it, machine learning, artificial, assisted, augmented intelligence.

With so many new claims of the next digital saviour, is it just hype or a is there something in it.

“My Machine Isn't Learning...”

We're looking for original contributions that present machine learning and technology intelligence through attacks, analyses, designs, applications, protocols, systems, practical experiences, and theory.

As usual the theme is not prescriptive, and proposals may include (but are not limited to) the following topics:

- Information technology
- Network security & Cryptography
- Web Application security
- Mobile security
- Usable security
- Virtualization and cloud computing
- Innovative attack / defense strategies
- Forensics / Malware
- Embedded device security / IoT
- Physical security and lockpicking
- Biometrics
- Hardware hacking
- Biohacking and modification
- Open source software
- Robotics (Always bonus points for bringing an actual robot)
- Massive abuse of technology
- Evolutionary computing
- Ethical and philosophical implications of hacking

Advice to presenters
PRESENTATIONS should describe novel technical contributions within the scope of the call. The allotted time for each presentation will typically be between 30 minutes to 1 hour (including Q&A); though shorter presentations are also welcome. Your presentation should tell us a story:

- Here is a problem
- It’s an interesting problem
- It’s an unsolved problem
- Here is my idea
- My idea works (details, data)
- Here’s how my idea compares to other people’s approaches

Remember that our participants' backgrounds and experience are varied. There must be something for everyone, so when choosing a subject go with what you are comfortable with regardless of the difficulty level.

If your talk is not selected, please keep in mind that we aim to provide a "lighting talks" track where speakers can present their topics on a first come/first served basis.

Best of luck and thanks for being part of Security BSides London!

As in previous years, the final schedule for BSides London 2019 will be selected by public vote.
