BSidesLondon "Rookie Track" CFP 2020
At BSides London, this year being held on 3rd June, we aim to target the whole of the security community, from security hobbyists to working pen-testers, from those just getting in to the field to seasoned professionals. One of the hardest leaps a newcomer to the industry can make is from watching talks to actually giving their own. With this in mind we have decided that this year we will continue to run a track of talks specifically dedicated to those who have never spoken at a conference before and we have named it "The Rookie Track".

This track is for anyone who has never presented at a conference before, 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 but has never had the confidence to set up and present their information.

As it is quite daunting to create a full hour long talk and go through a normal CFP for your first talk we have decided to make it all a little easier. Talks will be just 15 minutes long and hopefully in a smaller, more intimate room than the normal conference theatres. We are creating an easier CFP process and we are also offering mentors who help you through the whole process. When you sign up to be involved we will assign you a mentor, someone with speaking experience who has been through the process and will be able to help you along the way. They won't write the slides for you but they will help review them, offer suggestions on content and, we think quite importantly, will be in the audience when you give your presentation so you know there will be at least one friendly face there willing you on.

If you are interested in getting involved and giving your first presentation at BSidesLondon 2020 then please complete the CFP form below. At the moment, we have limited available slots it is still worth putting in your information to either grab a slot or get on the waiting list.

Thanks again.
