Thank you for your interest in submitting a talk to ShellCon
ShellCon is a security conference. As such, presentations should focus on topics that are relevant and useful to security practitioners. When selecting talks, special emphasis will be placed on those that teach skills, concepts, tools, or techniques that the audience can put to use immediately. Complete conference details can be found at shellcon.io.
Multiple submissions from the same person are welcome! Multiple presenters for one talk are also welcome.
We will be providing power, a microphone, and a projector with HDMI inputs. Let us know if you have any special requirements and we will do our best to accommodate. This is especially relevant for Workshops.
Titles should be indicative of the content of the talk. If you have a super clever title that doesn't necessarily describe the content but is just too good to pass up, please provide a secondary title either in () after the main title or in the Notes for the Organizer section (see below).
Abstract is the description as it will be published on the schedule and website. It should be short, to the point, and give a good idea of what you’ll be covering.
Notes for the organizer This is a non-public field, meaning that it won’t be published. This is where you can provide the selection committee with any additional details about your talk that will help convince us that your talk should be placed on the conference schedule. Good things to include here:
- A more detailed outline of your talk
- Why you feel that this talk is beneficial to the security professionals who will be attending the conference
- Links to videos of previous talks you've given (it's ok if you've presented the same topic previously)
Audience Takeaways is for you to tell us what the audience will take away from this talk. It should highlight the information, techniques, ideas, skills, etc. that the audience will gain and be able to put to immediate use.
Talks which sound like an advertisement for a product or service will not be accepted.
There are three different categories you can submit to: Talks, Workshops, and RaiseMe.
Talks are a lecture format and are either 30 or 50 minutes long including Q&A. Talks will be recorded and made available on the ShellCon website. We are looking for presentations which focus on practical information, techniques, ideas, skills, etc. that security professionals, both offensive and defensive, can put to use in their jobs.
Workshops are 4 hours and are intended to be an interactive classroom environment where the participants work through exercises with the instructor in order to gain hands-on experience with the subject matter. Please include prerequisite knowledge/experience in your submission; if none is necessary, please say so.
RaiseMe is all about career advancement or breaking into the infosec profession for the first time. Since these are soft-skills talks speakers can be anyone with a story to tell that may be helpful to people in this position. Staffing, HR, and hiring managers are particularly encouraged to share their experience and advice.
Thank you again!
Speakers sharing their knowledge and experience is a big part of what makes ShellCon a valuable experience for attendees. All speakers receive complementary admission to the conference for themselves and a guest.
If you have any questions or need to reach out for any other reason please don't hesitate to email email@example.com.
You can enter submissions until 2019-07-20 23:59 (US/Pacific), 3 weeks, 3 days from now.
