Hello and welcome to the ShellCon CFP! This year we are doing things a little differently and everything is subject to change. Thank you for understanding.

The talk tracks are virtual this year. At the moment we are offering the option to live stream your talk or pre-record it. The virtual format allows for a bit more flexibility in the schedule than typical. If you have an idea that doesn't fit neatly into one of the given options feel free to mention it in your submission so that we can consider it.

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.

Submission guidelines:

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 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 okay 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.

You can enter submissions until 2020-08-17 23:59 (US/Pacific), 5 days, 23 hours from now.
