Step 5 - Create Your Session Abstract

Your paper is always awesome, no doubt on that. However it's always handy to know what is expected to maximize the success. Our Review Board will consist of highly experienced information security experts from all over the world. They just love geeky security and innovative technology. So, quickly write down your papers and send it to us.

Quick Tips On Content Selection -

  • Short and Precise .. The best communication is the sentence which is unambiguous, short and impactful. We look for similar content which
    appeal to human senses and is easy to understand.
  • Out Of The Box .. Content has no end. Yet the edge above is thought by very few. We like to encourage human nature of innovation, creativity
    and discovery. Such is why we are Humans not Apes!
  • Helpful .. Mostly sharing knowledge has a common goal of helping the infosec peers. We encourage your ideas that help the security community
    in solving a problem.
  • Trending .. Even though trending topics get the maximum competition, they also get a few more slots. These topics equip a CISO with current technologies and vulnerabilities. They are a few favorites to our audience.
  • Experience .. Time has been by far the best teacher. No one denies that. So, your experience can count a lot. Tell us the experience that is
    unique to you and also awesome. Our CISOs would lend an eager ear to that.
  • Technical Details .. It is highly probable your audience has the fundamentals or basics of a subject grasped. We therefore advice you to deliver your speech at an advanced level where it can be most appropriate for information security officers. For example, if you are talking about
    Denial-Of-Service, you may assume your audience understands the difference between DOS and DDOS and also understands most popular software mechanisms available. Our security conference cherishes more detail from its Speakers.

Step 6 - You Did It, Sit back and Relax

Great, You're done! Our review board will review the content and get back to you via mail. 

P.S. - We are unable to alot speaking slot to everyone right now. We hope it's possible in future. For now our review board selects the speakers as mentioned above.  

Step 7 - Declined? Ask Why

Incase we could not accept your paper this year, we are very sorry for that. However, you must know 'Why?' . Please mail us at to know what went wrong. There is no reason why you should be disheartened, it is the constraints of time that bind us. We might take sometime to revert back but we will definitely do.Start afresh, keep amendments in mind and submit your proposal the year after-because most speakers get accepted eventually and we'd hate to miss you.
