BSides Canberra is a hacker con, not an InfoSec or Cyber Security conference. Hackers are more focused on the joy of discovery, deep innerworkings, as well as novel approaches to understanding. InfoSec/Cyber Security is more focused on enterprise, frameworks, and protecting the interests of share holders. There is great value in both types of content, but our con is a hacker con by design.
Because of our focus, submissions that support the hacker mindset or demonstrate how to master a certain technique are going to be selected over a great enterprise Cyber Security talk. BSides Canberra has always tried to provide a way to amplify the work of Australian hackers, and to create a venue for research that allows for others to grow.
BSides Canberra does not seek or accept money to secure a speaking spot. You have to earn your speaking spot by impressing the CFP review team with your knowledge and skill, only then will you get your spot on stage in front of thousands of hackers.
Like always we strive to only accept those talks of the highest caliber, and we have have limited time to go back and forth asking for clarifications or missing information in your submission. Submit your best, most complete form, and if anything changes please email us an update to maximise your chances.
