NorthSec 2020

NorthSec 2020 will take place on May 14 and 15, 2020.

NorthSec is an 8 day long applied security event with a conference, competition, and professional trainings. The conference -- and this CFP -- consists of two tracks of talks, up to 4 tracks of 2-3 hour workshops, and a huge space for villages and community projects throughout the conference. The event is friendly and relaxed, with a comfortable 15 minutes between talks for participants to mingle, move around, drink coffee and craft beer and enjoy the "hallway track".

CFP Timeline

  • CFP Opened;
  • Jan 30th, 1st round of the CFP closes;
  • Feb 1st, 2nd round of the CFP opens;
  • Feb 25th, 1st round of talks announced;
  • Mar 15th, 2nd round of the CFP closes;
  • Apr 1st, 2nd round of talks announced.

Why submit during round 1? About 2/3 of the talks will be chosen during round 1. Since NorthSec is a generalist event, round 2 of the CFP will be focused on getting talks to fill gaps left by round 1. So if you submit a an amazing proposal during round 2, but it's on a topic that is already broadly covered by talks selected during round 1, you might get rejected.
