SHARE YOUR PASSION, EXPERIENCE AND RESEARCH

BSidesKC aims to provide a diverse range of talks covering both conventional cybersecurity topics as well as emerging threats and technologies. Topics can range from completed or near-complete research, tool development, best practices, lessons learned and experiences. Generally speaking, if it deals with security, it is applicable. BSides conferences are designed to be conversations and should allow for interaction with the attendees, as lectures are nice from time to time, but new insights or ancillary work often comes from dialogue. 

Why should you consider presenting?

  • Increase the overall strength of our community by sharing your knowledge, best practices and experiences with peers and emerging professionals
  • Have the opportunity to share your interests and network with other like-minded individuals
  • Develop collaborative relationships and crowd source new ideas and solutions
  • Immediate feedback from your audience
  • BSidesKC provides all attendees surveys for every talk. This helps our speakers get better!

About Presentations

Proposals will be considered for the following types of presentations:

  • 15 minute (or less) lightning talk – For those new to presenting, have a partial research topic, or looking for feedback on a topic.
  • 20 minutes - Maybe you have a well-formed topic, but it wouldn't keep an audience engaged for 50 minutes? Or maybe you get dry mouth when talking > 21 minutes? 😉
  • 50 minutes – For the seasoned presenter or maybe you just like to talk a lot.
  • Discussions panels – Have an idea for a discussion panel, we’re open to the idea.
  • Workshops - We have open slots on Friday, April 26 for workshops lasting from a couple hours to a full day. Submit your topic.
