Call for Participation

BSidesSF will take place in San Francisco from May 4-5, 2024.

Note: We DO NOT provide speaker or travel stipends at this time (except on a case-by-case basis with villages). We also DO NOT accept vendor pitches of any sort in our conference program. Thank you for your understanding.

All deadlines are in Pacific Standard Time (UTC-8).

Call for Participation is closed! Thanks to all who submitted.

We received a total of 334 reviewable submissions (up 59.8% from 209 in 2023), but could only accept 60. This means we had an unusually low acceptance rate of 17.9% (compared to 28.7% in 2023). We will be reviewing ways to improve the CFP process and acceptance rate for 2025+. Stay tuned!
