Bsides Belfast CFP (Call for Presentations) now closed!

We had 78 submissions from 64 speakers and had to whittle them down to just 17! To those who made it, well done, and to those who didn’t; thank you for putting yourselves forward and we hope you give it another go next year!

BSides was born as a home for the talks that were a little too offbeat for regular conferences, and we’re convinced that everyone inside the security industry (whether veteran or newbie) has a story to tell. In previous years we’ve heard talks ranging from what it was like being the subject of police investigation, to how one college researcher found the security flaws in Dublin’s light rail network, to in-depth dissections of malware attacks, to how the security lessons of the 1990 apply today. (If you want to see some of these talks, and a lot more, check out our Youtube channel.)

We welcome all ranges of experience, from first-timers to seasoned pros, and while we want to showcase the best of local talent we’re also keen to bring people from around the world to our stage.
