Call For Papers

0x0Anniversary SEC-T 2017 CFP is OPEN

The SEC-T Organizer team is proud to announce the start of the 2017 call for papers for the 10th anniversary for the annual SEC-T Conference in Stockholm, Sweden.

This Call for Papers extends to both the main conference and the preceding community night event.

What and When

SEC-T is an non-profit, English speaking, two day, single track information security conference taking place in late summer every year in Stockholm, Sweden. At SEC-T we focus on providing our audience with high quality talks and in depth “QnA” with speakers. SEC-T is a conference where you can feel safe from sales pitches and marketing presentations as we have a large focus on our speakers research and first person accounts.

The speaker slots on our schedule are either 30 minutes (SmallTalk) or 60 minutes (Talk), where the latter contains a 15 minutes moderated question and answers session (QnA).

The SEC-T conference is divided into three separate parts; the SEC-T2ion, the Community Night event, and the SEC-T conference:

  • The SEC-T2ion [Di-sec-tion], are our in-depth workshop sessions taking place on the 12-13:th of September.
  • The Community Night event is a free event intended to be inclusive of students and non-ticket holders, taking place on the evening of the 13:th of September.
  • The SEC-T conference is the main conference taking place on the 14-15:th of September.

All events take place at the venue Anrika Nalen in Stockholm, Sweden.

What content do we like

We are a single track conference that has focuses on highly technical content in a multitude of fields of computer security. Since we are a single track conference talk slots are limited and we are therefore not likely to feature several talks covering the same subject.

Some of our most popular subjects in the past has included Malware reverse engineering, Radio attacks cryptography as well as System specific hacking techniques including mainframes and SAP systems.

To be considered for a speaker slot at SEC-T you need to send an email to [email protected] providing us with the following information:

At SEC-T you are also a paid speaker, an honorary of 1000€ is paid out to every talk that presents at the main conference (This does not include speakers only presenting at the community night).

*  To minimize or eliminate the hassle of handling expenses SEC-T prefers to make all travel and living arrangements.

The Schedule

The submission deadlines are:

  1. First acceptance round of speakers starts on July 1:st.
  2. Second and final acceptance round of speakers starts August 1:st.

To ensure your submission is considered it must be made before August 1:st, and to increase your chances of being selected as a speaker it is recommended that your submission is made before July 1:st. Acceptance rounds usually takes less than a week to complete, submissions made before July 1:st will automatically be considered for the August 1:st round as well.

As a speaker you will be notified that we have received your submission and when we have come to a decision regarding your participation.

Be sure to indicate if you also can consider giving your talk at the Community Night Event.
