]-- 44CON 2019 Call For Papers

Site: https://44con.com/
CFP: https://cfp.44con.com/
Tickets *available now*: https://shop.44con.com/

This is the Call for Papers for the 9th Annual 44CON security
conference, held from the 11th to 13th of
September, 2019. We invite jaded cynics, pessimists, optimists and
opportunists to come together and join
our broad church where the latest research of the day will be
discussed, debated and debased.

44CON has two main talk tracks, a workshop track and several breakout
areas including a village hall expo
track, a mental health village and a village pub. Additionally, 44CON
will host the ManyHats Club meetup
on the evening of Thursday 12th September, which will feature it's own
talks. The CFP covers the two main
talks and workshop tracks only.

Submissions for technical and infosec professional presentations &
workshops will be accepted. Presentations
are 45 minutes long with 5 minutes for Q&A. Workshops are 1-2 hours
long including setup/breakdown time.

* A presentation on the main tracks is in front of a seated audience.
* A Workshop is like a mini training course - e.g. a 2 hour walk
through Windows Kernel internals and local
privilege escalation opportunities.

Talks are filmed. Workshops are not.

This is NOT a call for training. Training takes place separately, see
here for details:

At the time of writing September's training slots are full, but we are
accepting expressions of interest for
our December and Spring 2020 training sessions.

]-- Submissions

Submissions should be sent via the CFP website https://cfp.44con.com/.
Submissions sent via email, post or
RFC1149 compliant avian carrier will not be accepted.

In particular, we are looking for original talks of the highest
quality in the following (but not exclusive)

* Offensive security talks for the advanced Pentester or Red Teamer
* Defensive talks for SOC analysts, threat hunters or enthusiastic
amateur defenders
* Talks on bugs, bug classes, finding and fixing security bugs
* Incident Handling, Forensics and Anti-Forensics
* Virtualisation, Container and Cloud Computing Security
* Cryptography, Cryptocurrencies, Cryptozoology and other Crypto-fu
* Hardware attacks and defence tools, techniques and practices
* Application and Mobile Security
* Networking, Comms, Critical National Infrastructure (CNI)
* Cyberspace, Policing, Law, Interception and Human Rights

Note: this is not an exhaustive list. If you have what you think is a
good talk proposal, please submit
it through the CFP system.

Priority is generally given to new presentations over those presented
elsewhere. If you have a presentation
that you have given or will give elsewhere prior to 44CON London in
September and wish to submit, please
let us know in your submission, and inform us of any changes you
intend to make for 44CON London.

If your talk or workshop is new, please let us know the details of
other conference(s) to which you have
or intend to submit through the CFP system.

]-- Maximising your odds of getting selected

Some information on how our CFP process works is here:

Some tips on how to game the process are available here:

Your submission will be up against over 200 others competing for about
20 talking slots. Our 20 reviewers
from around the globe vote based on what they can see. After the CFP
closes, Steve collates the feedback
and individually emails each submitter personally.

We expect accepted submissions to score an *average* of 4.25/5 or
higher. This means that perfectly good
talks don't get selected. If this happens to you, please don't be
upset. Not getting into 44CON is a
badge of honour, and comes with (hopefully) useful feedback for you to
try again some other time.
