BSidesSF 2020 Call for Workshops
BSidesSF is a non-profit organization designed to advance the body of Information Security knowledge, by providing an annual, open forum for discussion and debate for security practitioners. We produce a conference that is a source of education, collaboration, and continued conversation for information technologists. The technical and academic presentations at BSidesSF are given in the spirit of peer review and advanced knowledge dissemination. This allows the field of Information Security to grow in breadth and depth, and continue in its pursuit of highly advanced, scientifically based knowledge.

Your answer
Are you interested in donating your presenter gift(s) to charity?
BSidesSF is a non-profit and has historically chosen to show our appreciation to our speakers and workshop trainers through a small gift (around $50) often related to the theme of the conference or InfoSec more generally. This year BsidesSF will be supporting EFF, Hackers for Charity, and a third SF-based charity TBD.
