Call for Teachers
SEC-T2ion 2023 CFT is OPEN
|The SEC-T Organizer team is proud to announce the start of the 2023 call for teachers for the SIXTH annual SEC-T2ion workshop training event in Stockholm, Sweden.
This year we are looking to fill three to 4-6 separate tracks. This Call for Teachers extends to teachers of one day or two day workshops that would like to organize classes in conjunction with the annual SEC-T information security conference.
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 SEC-T conference is divided into three separate parts; the SEC-T2ion training, the Community Night event, and the SEC-T conference:
- The SEC-T2ion [Di-sec-tion] training, are our in-depth training sessions taking place on the 11-13:th of September.
- The SEC-T conference is the main conference taking place on the 14-15:th of September.
We understand it might be difficult to start a training on Monday Morning due to travel arrangements for both teachers and students. Depending on travel preferences training takes place whole days Monday-Tuesday (11-12:th) or, if you prefer, half day 11th (Monday), whole day of 12:th (Tuesday) and half day of the 13:th (Wednesday).
All events take place at the venue; Münchenbryggeriet in Stockholm, Sweden.
The SEC-T2ion workshops can span over one or two days and we can handle no more than six simultaneous classes. In the event of two one-day classes being accepted these will be bundled to the students as one two day workshop on two different topics.
Classes will have an enrollment of no less than four and no more than ten students, and the students will be required to have or state their prerequisite skills in accordance with your wishes.
As this is the fourth year we decided to organize SEC-T2ion there are undoubtedly still some kinks to be ironed out. Last year was a success and both our teachers and students were very happy with the setup so we will continue with what works and add some new ideas. Any ideas you may have as a teacher on how to make the learning environment better are quite welcome and we’d love to have a dialogue about this.
