Welcome to the BSides Atlanta 2022 CFP submission website!

Our theme this year is Re-Engage. Re-Imagine. Re-Ignite.

We welcome submissions for both technical and non-technical talks which address one or more of the areas in this year's theme.

We are looking for 20-minute and 50-minute presentations. Please specify the length of your talk in your submission.

NOTE: All selected talks will need to be given IN PERSON. There will be no “stream-in” or “remote speaking” option made available under any circumstances.

Submission Guidelines


We are using a double-blind peer-review process. This means that you must anonymize your submission so that reviewers cannot tell who submitted the proposed talk.

If you do not completely anonymize your submission, organizers will not consider it.

Our goal is to have each submission evaluated by multiple reviewers, with written feedback provided.

Before submitting, please look at one of the organizer's blog posts about the CFP process - https://andygreenphd.com/2018/04/09/on-conference-cfps-and-reviewing/
