BSides Belfast is soliciting papers and presentations for the 2017 annual BSides Belfast conference. BSides Belfast is nothing without talks, presentations and speakers, so please submit your talk to our CFP.


Submit your paper to


May 21, 2017 – CFP opens

July 31, 2017 – Final due date for all papers

September 7, 2017 – BSides Belfast 2017


We are most interested in new presentations, but important updates on existing work are welcome. We are also interested in presentations from new faces, therefore, we encourage any individual who has not spoken at a conference before to submit a talk and attempt to make BSides Belfast their inaugural event.


BSides Belfast presentations should be focused on topics that are of interest to security and technology professionals who are paying attention to current trends and issues. Presentations dealing with new technologies are always encouraged.

Presentations that are rehashes of old talks, primers on known technologies, or vendor pitches may be rejected. We want BSides Belfast to be educational and entertaining to the attendees and the community at large. If you feel you have a presentation that would be appropriate but may not exactly meet the guidelines in this CFP, feel free to submit it anyway! Just try to include information explaining your reasoning so we can better evaluate your proposal.

Let us help you get the word out on the next big thing!


Submissions with two or more speakers are welcome at BSides Belfast.


A sample submission can be found online here. We provide this as a general example. Your detailed outline need not look like ours, but it should be more than enough information to convince us of the merit of your talk.

Members of the BSides Belfast CFP review team will review all submissions.
